The unmistakable hum of high voltage buzzes as a TV comes to life. Color guns fire, illuminating phosphorescent pixels that bathe the room in a warm glow, setting the ambiance for a long night. These are, undeniably, the best years of electronic gaming. 

The late 70s to the mid-90s made computers affordable in homes and lit the fires of an era full of breakneck technological innovation. These wood-grain CRT wonders brought then-unbelievable adventures into our bedrooms and living rooms, and by the 1990s, we saw what arguably stands as the high water mark in electronic entertainment.

We feel great reverence for this era, and NEON Retrofest's interactive console and computer museum pays homage to these machines with immersive time capsule environments featuring real restored and preserved hardware and accurate interior design aesthetics from 1979 up to the 1990s.

It Belongs in an Interactive Museum

NEON is your chance to get hands-on experience with not just the retro gaming hardware that you know and grew up with, but also some extremely rare examples that that you might not even know existed because they were only released overseas. 

In 2023, expect an exotic selection of Japanese computers as a new addition to the museum, as well as an immersive timeline detailing how these unforgettable digital worlds shaped our realities. Journey through the first sparks of the home console and computing revolution, then dive into the bloody trenches of the 1990s 16-bit console wars.

Many who attended NEON Retrofest in 2018 left saying that the interactive console collection was the most impressive and immersive they had ever seen at a convention. We intend to set that bar even higher in 2023.
