They’ve obviously decided that it’s popular, as the Science Museum is again giving over an entire hall to computer games.

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.
