The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is Oakland's Video Game Museum. Known simply as "The MADE", the museum is host to free programming classes for kids, playable exhibitions of historically significant works, lectures, competitive tournaments, game development meet-ups, parties and community events. The MADE is a non-profit, 501c3, dedicated to the preservation of video game history, and to educating the public as to how video games are created. It is entirely volunteer run and provides educational credits for high school and college students.
The Museum is also dedicated to the heralding of video games as an artistic medium. From showcasing artistically valid games to documenting the timeline of the industry of games across the world, The MADE offers a unique experience for learning as well as playing. A wonderful place to spend a day on your own, or with friends and family!
The MADE is open Saturdays and Sundays, 12pm - 6pm, and weekdays for events. Admission is $7.00.
