We enjoyed Play It! Manchester last year and this time round there were even more consoles, more Minecraft, more games and pretty much more everything. Play It! Manchester is back at the museum until 17th April 2015 and we will definitely be heading across to take part in another gaming session when the kids finally finish school for the holidays. As it is based in the Museum it also means we can spend some time in the museum of science and industry too which is something both of my girls love so what starts as a quick gaming session can turn in to a full day of family fun.
Play It! Manchester has over 180 systems and thousands of games to play on ranging from simple games such as pacman to some of the best Lego games and there is something to suit everyone including the very latest in Virtual Reality technology.
Subject to availability tickets may also be available to buy at the museum on the day. Refreshments are also available to purchase at PLAY it! Manchester – during each session.
