Save the NVM!
Due to its closure during the coronavirus pandemic, the NVM's existence is under threat. It's a truly unique place – the UK’s only museum dedicated to videogames, one of the world's leading institutions in the field, and with an ambitious and engaging programme of activity. We are very lucky to have it in Sheffield. If you can, please support the museum's emergency fundraising appeal. Click here to make a donation.
