Curated by Valerie Waldron, Computer & Video Game Archive Manager

Game consoles have undergone many changes over the course of time. Each generation of game console brings new capabilities, greater potential for more powerful games, and an updated design. This exhibit will explore game consoles throughout the generations as we open them up and give you an inside look at how they have evolved.

We will begin with the first six generations of game consoles, and will look to expanding into the seventh and eighth generations at a later time.
