The History of Video Games

The History of Video Games is now open on the ground floor of The Galleries, an immersive video game experience for all the family, groups of friends, or a place to go solo. You are Player 1, the hero and protagonist – go along to join the adventure and step into the game.

Inside this time traveling portal you will find a huge selection of 1980s retro video arcade games, from Space Invaders through to PacMan, via Donkey Kong, Street Fighter 2 and much, much more. All set to free play, so no coins required.

Plus there is the entire History of Video Game console collection, a curated selection of games ready for you to play, and an immersive exhibition telling the story of video game history and gaming culture.
Each season is themed, with the opening season being ‘The Lost Arcade Part 2’, running until 12 September.
