The Museum of Games and Gaming – Lancashire, England

The Museum of Games and Gaming is a private organization exploring the history of games and their influence on culture and society.

Founded in 2014 to preserve and study games, the Museum offers mobile exhibitions and customized educational opportunities. This community-minded organization features games created by the Vikings, early Egyptians, North Americans, and other societies.  Through the lens of gaming, the Museum looks at past civilizations and establishes tabletop, party, role-playing, card, and video games as tools for personal development, community building, and education.

While there is no physical space for the Museum at this time, the organization exhibits at events and plans to put the entire collection of thousands of items online for all to enjoy.


Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
