Power UP relaxed morning session

Join us for a relaxed morning session at Power UP, for people who might need a quieter environment to enjoy our hands-on gaming event.

At this hugely popular sensory-friendly session, you’ll be able to play more than 160 consoles, from retro arcade standards through to the latest in VR technology, free from the hustle and bustle of the general public.

We will open the museum doors exclusively at 8.00, and you’ll get access to Power UP between 8.30–10.00. Please note, the rest of the museum will remain closed and won’t be accessible until 10.00, our regular opening time.

From Pong to Pacman and Minecraft to Mario, at Power UP there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a retro games fan, a serious gamer—or just want to beat your family at Mario Kart.
