We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Description :


Join gaming experts Dan & Adrian for a LIVE gaming history tour of the museum!

Video games have progressed from simple black and white pixelated play to immersive epics that rival any blockbuster movie. But how did this happen?

During this special LIVE virtual museum tour, our in-house gaming experts Dan & Adrian will guide you through the history of video games from the very beginning to the modern day.

We'll also provide a printable activity sheet for you to fill in during the tour if you like!

At the end there’ll be an opportunity to discuss and even argue the merits and weaknesses of your favourite consoles and games!

The tour starts at 6:30pm GMT, and will last around 90 minutes. There will be time to ask questions at the end.

One ticket permits your whole family to take part on one device.

Suitable for all ages, recommended for those over 7.

Here's some feedback from our previous tour participants who tried and tested our virtual tours for us:
