National Videogame Museum – Sheffield, United Kingdom

Located in England’s South Yorkshire region, the National Videogame Museum is a cultural centre created to inspire interest in video game design and play.

Opened in 2015, the Museum quickly earned a reputation for its thoughtful approach to education. Visitors to the Museum are invited to explore the collection of new and classic video games available for play and learn about the positive side of gaming culture. Games available for hands-on play include Donkey Kong, Tetris, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Metal Slug, QWOP, Twine, Inks, and dozens more.

STEAM learning programs offer the public a chance to experiment with game development while the many talks, events, and conferences provide an opportunity to learn from those directly involved in the gaming industry.

The National Videogame Museum is a non-profit organization. Funding is provided by visitors to the Museum, Patreon supporters, and corporate sponsorship.
