Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

Tour the Computer Museum in Animal Crossing!


Katrina, our Design & Communications Officer, has lovingly recreated our computer museum within Animal Crossing New Leaf!

This started with just keeping a game console collection in her Animal Crossing house. Later she rented out her own space inside the Animal Crossing museum to display her items. With lockdown, and being at home with more time on her hands, she found herself missing the real museum more and more. So now she's managed to develop her museum to the point that it could be open to visitors by appointment!

With help from fellow Animal Crossing player & Collections Officer Adrian, they have created quite a faithful replication of our museum!

This includes the main gallery, archive, classroom, cache store, Megaprocessor, LEO exhibition, and even our t-shirts - which you can get by scanning the QR codes below!

Watch the video for a complete guided tour - including side-by-side comparisons with the real exhibits!



What do you think is the best bit?

Is there anything they've missed?
