On Saturday the 21st April at the RCM HQ (in Leicester) we are having a Retro Gaming Day! - A day of gaming . . . with friends . . . with drinks . . . with food!
Doors open at 10.30am and close around 10.30pm. Food available throughout the day - the bar opens around 2.00pm.

Tickets are £10 and can be purchased now via the purple MyDonate button on the right hand side of this page. Tickets are pre-sale ONLY and will be very limited.

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 below 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 foot of this webpage.

Entrance to the museum costs £6.50 for adults and £3.50 for children - with over 40 systems that are fully hands on!
