To make a donation for entrance to come to our event on Saturday 30th November, you can either click
here or on the Virgin Money Giving logo at the bottom right
of this webpage. This will take you to our Virgin Money Giving pages - you can then donate (minimum of £10 per person please) - please leave a quick message
with the name(s) / nickname(s) you are paying for and any details you think we might need. When it asks you if you want to add gift aid - it is entirely up to you but
obviously we get quite a bit extra from that. We look forward to seeing you on the 30th November.

The Retro Computer Museum is a registered charity (Charity registration no. 1146912) dedicated to the benefit of the public for the preservation, display and public

experience of computer and console systems from the 1960's onwards.

Our main focus is on systems that were in use in the home, rather than big computer systems and mainframes of early computer development. We have systems ranging from
the 1970s - such as Binatone Pong and of course the amazing Commodore Pet right up to the lovely delights of the late 1990s - with systems such as the Sega Dreamcast.
Along with the fantastic and varied machines of the 1980s too we have a huge collection of retro gaming goodness.

Not only do we open on most Sundays to the public but we also provide Retro Gaming and Computing Events for Schools, Colleges, Unversities, Corporate or Birthday
Parties - either at our HQ in Leicester or at your premises - depending on systems required. Please contact us using the details above for further details.

We rely totally on donations from our members and visitors and have had literally hundreds of systems donated as part of our collection, along with numerous books,
software titles, peripherals, magazines, brochures, etc. We appreciate any and all donations, no matter how small. We also accept dead machines and peripherals as these can
be used to repair existing systems. We are 100% staffed by volunteers but can be contacted for any queries or donation offers by using the contact details at the top left of this webpage.

Entrance to the museum costs £7.50 for adults and £4.00 for children - with over 40 systems that are fully hands on!
