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!

It is interesting to look at the prices in the catalogue. Use this inflation calculator to see how much these games and games consoles are relative to todays prices.

For example: in 1993 the Street Fighter II for the Sega Mega Drive was £59. In 2016 this is around £110.
The Philips CD-i 220 console was £449. In 2016 this is around £838.
The Nintendo SNES Super Mario All Star pack was £129. In 2016 this is around £240.
