The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (The MADE) is Oakland's Video Game Museum. It hosts playable exhibitions of historically significant works, free programming classes for kids, lectures, tournaments, game development parties and community events. The MADE is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of video game history, and to educating the public on how video games are created.
The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is the only all-playable video game museum in the world—let that sink in. In other words, you can touch everything. Here, you can test drive the Big Steel Battalion Box, or participate in free Scratch Programming Workshops for Kids, or compete in a Super Smash Brothers Melee Tournament; see site for all programming.
