About Us

Our address is 3400 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94611. If you’re interested in volunteering, please check out our meetings.

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is Oakland’s Video Game Museum. Known simply as “The MADE,” we host free programming classes for kids, playable exhibitions of historically significant works, lectures, tournaments, game development parties and community events. The MADE is a non-profit, 501c3, dedicated to the preservation of videogame history, and to educating the public as to how videogames are created.

We are also dedicated to the heralding of videogames as an artistic medium. We support developers and artists in their work with co-working Tuesdays starting at 1 PM, and events which bring the public into closer interaction with the game development and testing processes.

Our goal is to inspire the next generation of game developers.
