Xbox Museum is part of Xbox’s 20th-anniversary celebration, allowing players to take a deep look at the company’s history in making games alongside their own unique gaming experiences. 

Microsoft’s Xbox launched back in 2001 and changed the shape of console gaming forever. From blockbuster successes like Halo and Gears of War to cult-classics like Fusion Frenzy, the tech giant’s first time at the plate was a resounding homerun – but we know now that they were only getting started.

This new exhibit allows fans a chance to walk the halls of history via a virtual arena that showcases the brand’s biggest highlights and missteps of the last two decades. That’s not all, though; the interactive display also offers a more personal touch for veteran Xbox users.

The Xbox Museum is a virtual tour of all the biggest moments of the Xbox brand so far. Featuring 132 interactable objects, the showcase allows players to explore a digital collection of the brand’s storied history.

From the launch of Xbox Live all the way up to the birth of the Xbox Series X|S, each exhibit features an in-depth look at familiar Xbox moments of past and present. Not all of them are positive things, either – there are individual monuments for Xbox 360’s Red Ring of Death (and the time that Microsoft failed to buy Nintendo back in 2000).

The entire experience is tied together by offering players a chance to look at their personal history and connection to the Xbox brand over the years.
