They’ve obviously decided that it’s popular, as the Science Museum is again giving over an entire hall to computer games.
Returning for a third year this hands-on video game extravaganza features video games, computers and consoles from the past four decades, from Pong and Pacman to Minecraft and Mario.
Tickets cost £10 for an adult 90 minute session or £18 for a half-day pass. Children cost £8/£14 respectively. Full price options below.
Household names PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch will sit alongside retro consoles such as the SNES, SEGA Dreamcast and the original educational computer, the BBC Micro.
Power UP is recommended for ages 5+, and all gamers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult.
In addition, adult-only evenings will run on 4th, 5th and 12th April.
