Time Out says

Ever reminisced about Space Invaders on the Atari 2600, Crash Bandicoot on PS1, or wanted to throw it right back with a round of Pong? Make a beeline for Australia’s only interactive video game console museum on Aberdeen Street, where you can go behind the scenes and read up on the history of the consoles before hitting the controllers.

The Nostalgia Box has a showcase of around 100 consoles, hailing all the way from the 1970s through to the 2000s. And they're not just for show – in the interactive games arena, you can actually try your hand on the controllers and see if muscle memory is enough to get you over the line on your old-school favourites. 

While kids will most definitely have a ball, you can book out spaces in the Nostalgia Box for more grown-up parties, too – with the option to snazz up your experience with a little BYO booze, nibbles and custom-made trophies.
