Before "Nintendo" leased the generic term for "video game" the company Atari was the synonym for it. With PONG in pubs and arcade halls and later the households were conquered first with video game technology - but ATARI wanted more.

Founded by visionary Nolan Bushnell, who recognized the potential of new digital technology at an early stage, Atari has rapidly become a company with global significance before it - as others of this time - failed too early

From the early arcade machines on the video game consoles to their home computers of the 80s and early 90s, the Digitalretropark shows in his exhibition, the bandwidth of the creative output of Atari.

A thematically complementary cultural program with live music, lectures and other special features extends the exibition rounds every Thursday evening from the presentation.
