Description :

During this special museum tour, our in-house gaming experts will guide you through the history of video games from the seventies to the modern day.

Video games have progressed from simple black and white pixelated play to immersive epics that rival any blockbuster movie. But how did this happen?
What did Nintendo make before Mario, and who was their real competitor in Japan?
The tour will start at 2pm and last around 45 minutes, and provides an opportunity to discuss and even argue the merits and weaknesses of your favourite consoles and games!

The tour is free (although museum entry charges apply), but booking is essential to guarantee your place. Museum staff will be on hand after the tour to locate specific games that you want to play from our archive of over 14,000 games!

Snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
