Focus on photography with The National Videogame Museum this October half term as they present ‘Picture This’ a new exhibition capturing the fun of videogame photography.
Running 21 - 29 October, visitors can enjoy endless camera based fun, including generating their own content by taking pixel perfect selfies with a Game Boy Camera or crafting props for a photo booth close up.
Ideal for all ages and perfect for non-gamers alike, visitors can also capture Pikachu and friends in their natural habitats in Pokemon Snap, build a photo album while exploring beautiful environments in Alba: A Wildlife Adventure or visit Scandinavian inspired towns and cities in Toem: A Photo Adventure, a stunning indie game that utilises a black and white hand drawn artstyle.
The museum is open every day from the 21 - 29 of October, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm. Book tickets here.
The NVM is run by the BGI, a registered charity that educates the public about the art, science, history, and technology of videogames.
The NVM celebrates videogame culture and allows the public to play most of its exhibits, which include over 100 games consoles, arcade machines and other interactive experiences, including games designed exclusively for the Museum.
The Museum holds one of the UK’s largest collections of nearly 5,000 videogame objects, arcade machines, technology, game memorabilia, and ephemera, and has welcomed over 250,000 visitors, including hundreds of school visits, since it opened in Sheffield in 2018.
The Museum presents a mixture of permanent and temporary exhibitions including the recently launched 'The Art of Play' that reveals the art, creativity and people behind five UK-made videogames.
