Billed as ‘the ultimate hands-on interactive gaming experience’, Power UP is back at the Science and Industry Museum for the first time in three years. Complete with over a hundred different consoles and the best titles from across five decades of world-changing entertainment, Power UP is now open every weekend and each day during school holidays until late 2023.

Visitors can challenge friends and family on every platform from Atari to the PS5 and latest-generation virtual reality systems, across titles including Pac-Man, Minecraft and many, many more.

Discover games made by winners and nominees from the Bafta Young Games Designers Awards. Plus, be inspired by local people behind the games, as well as companies who have made a splash in the world of gaming in the new section dedicated to Manchester’s gaming industry.

Tickets are currently available to book for the summer period with more tickets due to be released for future dates. Avid gamers and nostalgic parents are encouraged to throw down the gauntlet without hesitation. As always, the rest of the world-renowned museum is free to explore during your visit.
