The NVM is a treasure trove of both permanent and regularly changing exhibits.
There’s always something new to discover!
Some of our smaller exhibits are organised into something we call ‘Bundles’, groups of games that we’ve placed together to explore an idea.
Our exhibitions are carefully socially-distanced and staff fully trained to deliver a COVID-secure day-out that’s exciting, fully-playable and safe!
Here’s the full list of games you can play here at the moment…
