Game Masters: The Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

27 Sep 2019 to 9 Mar 2020

The National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) has transformed into Australia’s biggest video game arcade with the world’s greatest designers, characters and 80 playable games!

Game Masters is an interactive journey through five decades of video game history, offering both a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of the world’s most popular characters and franchises, and a chance to play them. Check the website for the full list of games you can play.

Created and curated by ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image), Game Masters first opened in Melbourne in 2012. It has since toured to nine museums worldwide including venues in the USA, Germany, New Zealand, Scotland and Sweden. Much loved by audiences around the globe, the exhibition has been refreshed at each leg of the tour.
