What we're about

What is the MIA?

The MIA is an interactive, social, and collaborative gaming experience.

Come enjoy video games like never before! You will play a range of the best games in history, and collaborate with your friends to beat our custom challenges. Plus, drink, snack, and socialize in a fun arcade setting with lot of neon, synth music, and surprises you’ll have to see to believe!

Here’s How It Works

You will collaborate with your friends to complete challenges for each featured game – we curate the best games, vintage to modern. Each featured game has a challenge, and every challenge needs to be won by a different player, so everyone’s contribution is important. The sooner your team completes all the challenges, the sooner you’ll be rewarded!

The Museum of Interactive Arts Experience

Don’t expect a history lesson or boring guided tours. The MIA is for you and your friends to enjoy yourselves first and foremost. You will learn about some of history’s greatest videogames the most natural way possible – by playing them! We also provide fun facts on the significance of the games, so even for the most frustrating challenges you’ll never have to ask yourself ‘why are we even playing this?’

The MIA is a casual, interactive setting, not a traditional museum - so expect flowing alcohol, pumping synth music and flashing neon lights. We work to make sure that you’re having fun, interacting with all the games and your friends, and having a great time learning about some epic games in the process!
