Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Quite a revolutiionary game on the Spectrum that pushed the now aging machine to it's very limits.

Using a new graphics engine called Freescape, the player can explore the landscape in 3D shaded graphics, admittedly in a very low frame rate, but revolutionary for the time.

The idea is to travel round a moon which has dangerous levels of gas building up under the surface. A series of refineries must be placed on the surface to remove the gas levels safely.

This would be a lot easier if it was not for the moon's defense systems, which have lasers, force fields and other such traps, that must be disabled or destroyed to progress.

Buildings can be explored, and puzzles solved to move to other quadrants.

More acclaimed games from incentive to use the graphics routine are Dark Side, Total Eclipse, and Castle Master.
