The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment themade.org is a play-able living museum of video games from the last few decades in Oakland, CA.
The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is Oakland’s Video Game Museum. Located at address is 3400 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94611 and known simply as “The MADE,” we host playable exhibitions of historically significant works, free programming classes for kids, lectures, tournaments, game development parties and community events. The MADE is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of video game history, and to educating the public on how video games are created.
Our goal is to inspire the next generation of game developers.
We are also dedicated to the heralding of video games 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. Check out our meetings if you’re interested in volunteering.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
