A unique museum where you can play, explore and create videogames has opened in Sheffield. The interactive museum gives people the chance to have fun, as well as discover the past, present and future of play.

With more than a hundred different games, including some that have been created in Sheffield, The Videogame Museum offers something for the whole family.

The people behind the UK’s only videogame museum are excited to encourage people to make new games about new things. As they rightly say, “Nobody knows what the future of videogames will be – maybe you’re going to show us…”

Young people will have the space to play, talk and learn more about games, and even create their own at the museum via the Pixelheads club, and there will be worshops, events and classes to join in with too.

The National Videogame Museum is run by The National Videogame Foundation, a non-profit Community Interest Company.
