Freddi Arcade & Toys Museum

A vintage video game wonderland in downtown Reykjavik. 

This arcade joint right in the city center is all you need if you happen to be in downtown Reykjavik and aren’t so interested in the party scene that takes place each weekend all over the city.

Freddi Arcade & Toys is packed with vintage games from the 1980s and ’90s. It’s an ideal spot to relive (or experience for the first time) the glory of classic video games.

Freddi Arcade has some of the most memorable names in games including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat, and Street Fighter, as well as classic pinball machines like Fun House, Dirty Harry and Terminator 2.

You can take part in “all-you-can-play” for one hour for a flat fee, or if you’re looking for something more intimate, there are console rooms for rent where you can choose the console that suits you best: NES, Nintendo 64, Nintendo Gamecube, Sega Mega Drive and Playstation 4.

Know Before You Go

Open every day from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. NOTE: the arcade has moved to a new location. Address: Bankastræti 0, Reykjavík, Iceland.
