The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment was founded in 2011 as a non-profit dedicated to the preservation of our digital heritage in playable form, and to inspire the next generation of game developers. The MADE is a 501c3 non-profit. 
Despite having made a remarkable impact upon our modern culture, video games have largely been left out of the mainstream information preservation discussion. Aside from occasionally popping into the public consciousness, the day-to-day work of preserving our digital heritage in a form that can still be played is largely performed by loosely knit groupings of communities that operate somewhat outside the legal bounds of modern copyright laws. 
Thus, the MADE seeks to legitimize the preservation of video games as both a historic and artistic medium within the context of our time. Hence, visitors to the MADE can pay a single admission fee and then subsequently play any of our collection of over 12,000 games across 40 systems for as long as they may like. 
Rather than an arcade, the MADE is a bit more like a digital library, where research can be performed, history can be learned, and of course, flights of fancy and adventure can take place.
