Five decades of video game fun is heading back to the Manchester Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) for Summer 2022. I’ve previously blogged about Power UP (back in 2018), and made a short YouTube video when I visited in 2019:
Sadly the last two years (2020, 2021) reduced my visits to tech events / museums, even when COVID related restrictions were lifted. With this in mind I am looking forward to getting some retro game time at MOSI.
The event runs on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) from 18th June, and every day during the school holidays. Adult tickets are £8, Senior tickets are £7 and Child / Concession tickets are £6 (prices correct as I write this blog post). I would recommend booking in advance and making sure to also book your required (free) museum entry ticket at the same time (i.e. you need a museum ticket to walk around MOSI to get into the exhibition).
The amazing news, according to the FAQ is that Power UP looks like it is staying through to the end of 2023! Lots of opportunities to experience the classics (fingers crossed for multiplayer N64 GoldenEye again!).
If you want to see some pictures of the 2018 event please check out my previous blog entry: https://geektechstuff.com/2018/08/09/power-up-manchester-museum-of-science-and-industry/ and I’ll post a new blog entry after I’ve visited this year.
