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!

Amstrad Mega PC - Owners Manual

This PC is based on the Amstrad PC7386SX computer, using an 80386sx processor. It has 1Mb of RAM (expandable on-board to 16Mb), and a VGA controller capable of 640 x 480 resolution with 16 colours.

In addition to these standard PC functions, the PC also supports the extended sound features of the Adiib sound synthesizer, and has a built-in dual analog joystick port.

But it is the last major feature which makes this machine unique in the PC world. That is the ability to play not only PC-based games, but also the highly successful arcade-based games in the Sega 16-Bit Mega Drive cartridge format.
