The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (stylized as The MADE) is a museum dedicated to digital art and gaming with fully playable gaming exhibits.[1] Its mission is to collect and curate video games, digital media concept art, and gaming systems to teach the public about digital art, and the process of gaming creation.

The Board of Directors and Board of Advisors are composed largely of veterans of the gaming industry, journalists, experts, and historians of the field.[2] The Museum's director is the internationally published technology journalist Alex Handy,[3] with Dr. Henry Lowood, Curator of Stanford University History of Science & Technology Collections and Film & Media Collections[4] serving on the board of directors.

In September 2015, the museum launched a Kickstarter campaign to acquire a venue in San Francisco, California.[5][6] It has a physical location in downtown Oakland, CA.
