LEGO Days at the Museum of Computing
Two favourite children's activities come together at the Museum of Computing in Swindon, LEGO and computer games. On Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd, visitors will be able to get hands-on and help to create a giant LEGO mosaic, using their reasoning, spatial and creative skills on a familiar toy in a very unfamiliar setting.
There will be the chance to play LEGO-themed computer games on original games consoles in the museums 'Pong to Playstation' section, including Lego Racers on the N64 and Lego Star Wars on the Playstation 2. Finally, those yearning for the simplicity of the 8 bit games from years ago, can recreate their favourite retro games character using LEGO bricks.
All activities are free, but standard museum admission charges apply. Adults £2, Children £1, Concession £1.50, Family £5
The Museum is open Friday 10:00-16:00 and Saturday 09:30-17:00
Open since 2003, the Museum of Computing was the UK’s first computer museum, and is fully Arts Council accredited. Staff work with local schools to improve computer literacy amongst the young through an innovative school programme, and through a childrens computer club in the Museum.
