EDITOR’S PICK – NATIONAL VIDEOGAME MUSEUM

Castle House, Angel Street, S3 8LS | thenvm.org
A visit to the National Videogame Museum is no passive experience. When your “exhibits” are videogames and when “learning about them” means getting to play (or even create) them, you can be sure of a good day. Some of the classics available on consoles and arcade machines include Pac-man, Donkey Kong and Monty Mole, and they’re all free to play with your price of admission.
