Ready, player one?

For a long time now video games have no longer been the reserve of children! Today, the world of gaming is everywhere, even in museums. In Manchester, at the MSI (Museum of Science and Industry) the public can discover or rediscover the iconic games from the short but intense history of video games. 160 consoles will be available for you to play Pong, Pacman, Minecraft or Super Mario. Get ready for some fiercely contested 90 minute sessions, and an opportunity to finally prove to your children that yes, you were the best at Street Fighter II, with the "old joysticks".

From Friday 3 to Sunday 19 August 2018 :
- Every day, from 10:00 to 17:00
