Kids Retro Gaming Parties

The Centre for Computing History is a great place to hold kids birthday parties and other celebrations in Cambridge.

 

Self Service (During normal opening hours)

We will supply tables in our foyer area where you can put your own birthday cake, snacks and drinks. The kids will have access to all of the hands-on gaming consoles and computers the museum has on display. As a low-cost self service option we ask that you take responsibility for clearing up any spillages and dropped food. We have the cleaning equipment available.

This self service option is only available during our normal opening hours (Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm) and other visitors will be in the museum.

The cost is just £48 (inc. VAT) plus our normal entry price of £6 per child and £8 per adult for groups of 20 or more. For groups of less than 20 there is a flat fee of £156 (inc. VAT).

The consumption of food and drink is restricted to the foyer area only.

Our policy for adult / child ratio follows the DfE guidelines:
6:1 if children are aged 5 -7 years,
10:1 if children are aged 8 - 10 years,
15:1 if children are aged from 11 years onwards.
