About

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is Oakland’s Video Game Museum.

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is a non-profit 501c3 located in Oakland, focused on inspiring the next generation of game developers through not only preserving the history of video games, but making them fully playable. We are the first and only all-playable video game museum in the world. Currently, we have over 12,000 playable games across 40 systems at our Oakland museum, as well as free Scratch classes for kids every single Saturday, game tournaments, and plenty of other community-focused events. We aren't here just because we love video games; we're here because over the past ten years, we have seen firsthand how important they are to everyone.

From the beginning, The MADE has always been a labor of love. In order to keep our lights on, and keep the magic of video games going, we depend on donations from people just like you who also understand that magic and that importance. Even a small monthly donation can have a really big impact for us.

In the past, we used our Patreon to directly support our efforts to preserve offline MMOs, starting with Habitat. Thus far, we have brought that game back for free online play at neohabitat.org. Going forward, all funds here will directly support The MADE's free programming classes for kids, community events, game preservation initiatives, and our daily operating costs.

Thank you for your continued support!
