Retrogame Museum Project Exhibition – Part 3
The second section of the exhibition, contained more consoles and also an area with consoles and TVs set up so you could try out various consoles and games (a German Zelda game, a Nintendo Virtual Boy, Epoch Cassette Vision, amongst others)
There were consoles from all over the world. These are mainly Western consoles, donated from fans and supporters of the organisation.
This was my first ever console! Many hours were spent playing squash, football and tennis (all were basically “pong”!).
The French console OC 6000.
A Russian console.
They had a selection of broken consoles on display. The owner of JARGA fixes some consoles and even builds parts that are no longer available like the N64 controller parts that can be seen on the left of the Famicom.
There was also a large selection of different controllers and joysticks from various consoles, from around the world.
And also fake consoles that had been bought or donated from around the world (mainly from Asia it seems).
There were also several consoles you could sit down and play, including these two very old consoles I’d never seen or played before.
This was an excellent exhibition, organised with a lot of love, care and passion. I believe there are plans to hold more exhibitions in the future, so definitely worth looking out for if you get the chance.

I took some video of the exhibition so when I get time to edit that, I’ll post it up on my YouTube channel.
