Halloween Takeover

23rd October – 1st November 2020

This year we’re having a spooky Halloween event at the museum!

Some ghastly Videogame ghosts have taken over the NVM, and we need your help to clean it up! We’re going to be open everyday across October Half Term (23/10 – 01/11) with some special Halloween activities. From Monday 26th to Friday 30th, you can create your own Videoghoul, take part in a ghastly Ghost Hunt and show off your skills in our Haunted Hi-Score challenge! See below for more details on what’s on this Halloween.

(NOTE: Any Halloween costumes are optional, but encouraged!)
