About The National Videogame Museum

We have created the UK’s only cultural centre dedicated to videogames, where tens of thousands of people have played the past, present and future of videogames. We’ve just reopened in a fantastic new centre in Sheffield which lets visitors play our collection of over 100 videogames, meet and talk with videogame creators, dive into videogame festivals and other events, and find out what games mean and how they are made.


We believe videogames are for everyone and so we celebrate everything to do with videogames and videogames culture in our unique space. We repair and preserve classic arcade machines, consoles and titles across 4 decades which everyone can play without needing a pocketful of change. We interpret videogames for visitors so people can find out what games mean and how they were designed. Visitors can play the latest games and even some in beta. We’ll be bringing seminal and up-and-coming videogames creators in to host Ask Me Anything talks. And we’re launching exciting Seasons of new content with some of the biggest names in games through 2019.
