Power UP returns to the Science Museum this Easter. This hands-on video game extravaganza features the very best video games, computers and consoles from the past four decades.
Power UP 2019 will take both gaming fans and novices on an interactive journey covering four decades of gaming history with 160 consoles and hundreds of games, right from retro arcade classics such as Space Invaders through to the latest in VR technology, catching a glimpse at what the future may hold for the world of gaming.
From Pong and Pacman to Sonic and Super Smash Bros, there is something to suit everyone, whether you’re a parent looking for child-friendly Easter holiday activities or a games aficionado who wants to revel in the classics. See the evolution of Super Mario Bros from Mario’s debut as a Donkey Kong villain to Super Mario Odyssey on the Switch, follow Lara Croft’s 22 year journey from the first PlayStation console to the latest generation PS4 and Xbox One, or get your nostalgia fix with the classic arcade games too good to update.
