News from the Museum on the Hill

Micro Museum
For us at The Micro Museum, 2019 has been a mixture of fun and sadness.

We have shared the enjoyment of our many visitors, most from afar and some from nearer home, but we also had to make a major business decision which resulted in the closure of The Games Gallery at the end of August.

As you may know, my husband, Mike, and I provide the funding of the Museum ourselves as an independent business. When the opportunity arose, we decided to spread our collection into a second building dedicated solely to videogames, just down Church Hill from the Museum. However, we, like many others have become victims of the high cost of business rates and insurance and maintenance and we can no longer afford to keep two buildings running.

However…fear not games lovers. You will still be able to enjoy all your favourite games because they are back in the main Museum building!

We are now looking forward to Christmastime and will be opening the Museum from Friday December 27 to Sunday December 29 (1pm - 4pm). So, when all the presents have been opened and you don’t know what to do with yourselves until the New Year arrives, come and spend some time finding out about the history of our modern digital age, see our huge collection of old tech, do the history quiz or the toy hunt (for little folk) and earn a certificate and, of course, play on our large selection of retro videogames on classic devices.
