We are 15 minutes walk from Sheffield Train Station.
We are less than 5 minutes walk from NCP Hartshead Square car park.

There is a cafe on our site run by Tamper who are local to Sheffield! It serves coffee and other hot and cold drinks, as well as sandwiches and other snacks.
We do not have space to eat your own food, but we are based in the heart of Sheffield and so there are many other cafes and shops right on our doorstep.
Your entry ticket allows to you to play all day with unlimited re-entry
We have loads of games including arcade cabinets, home computing classics, console favourites, and sometimes even games not yet released to the public. Our galleries are continuously changing!
Not at all, your entry ticket gives you access to three floors of stuff all on freeplay for you to enjoy to your heart’s content.
There is something here for everybody! All our content is aimed at a family audience. Due to the nature of the games, over 5’s will get the most out of the experience.
It is a requirement that under 12s be accompanied by an adult at all times. Under 12s will not be permitted entry to the Museum without an adult with a valid admission ticket.
The NVM galleries are a fully interactive experience. We do not monitor whether individuals are playing games, or how much they are playing. As such you require a ticket to access the gallery area.
