The Nostalgia Box Awards


The Nostalgia Box – A place where you relive your fondest childhood memories. It is also Australia’s first and only Video Game Console Museum, right here in the heart of Northbridge, Perth.

In the museum section, we set out to celebrate the people that made the video game industry what it is today, shedding light on why home video game consoles have evolved in the way they have. We showcase over 100 consoles from the 1970s through to the 2000s in an interactive exhibit. This is a great way to go behind the scenes and uncover the ‘making’ of the video game industry as you read stories of how each console was developed. You are sure to find most, if not all, retro consoles from your childhood as well as many you have never seen before.


Replay your favorite childhood games and try out other titles that you may have never experienced before. Included in your standard entry fee, you can spend hours playing the games you grew up with.  We have all the classic games available to play like Pong, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Crash Bandicoot and many more. It is not often that you get a chance to relive your childhood again, and more importantly, creating new memories by sharing it with your loved ones.
