The Age of information (AoI) was proposed in the literature to quantify the freshness of information. The majority of the work done in this area has theoretically evaluated AoI and its Peak (PAoI). In this paper, a method for obtaining the value of AoI and PAoI from experiments is proposed. We conducted an experiment emulating an M/M/1 queue and used the proposed method to evaluate AoI and PAoI. The values were compared to the expressions presented previously in the literature. Our results show that the proposed method is accurate for the M/M/1 queue. A statistical test was conducted to confirm the reliability of this conclusion.
