Science Museum

You are here:

180 consoles. 40 years of gaming. Game on.

Get down to the Science Museum this October half term to catch Power UP, back by popular demand for a second year. We’re filling a whole area of the museum to the brim with retro games and 180 consoles to give everyone the chance to Power UP and game on.

Planning to visit Power UP during half term? We expect to be very busy and strongly recommend booking your tickets in advance as capacity is limited.

This hands-on, fully interactive gaming event will feature the best video games and consoles from the past four decades. From Pong to Pac-Man and Minecraft to Mario, there’s something for everyone—whether you’re a retro games fan, a serious gamer or just want to get competitive.

Play against friends and family with multiplayer showdowns, relive your childhood favourites and test out some of the latest virtual reality experiences at this ultimate gaming extravaganza.

Will you make it onto our leaderboard?
