We're a perfect day-out for the whole family. Don't worry if you're not a hardened gamer, our amazing crew make sure everyone can get involved!


If you're a gamer and care about the past, present and future of videogames then you're going to love the NVA. As well as great and regularly changing exhibitions, we often welcome developers to talk about their work.


It doesn't matter if you're on a school trip, a day-visit or you're a creative person wondering if YOU could make a videogame... The NVA is here to encourage and help you on your journey to make your own videogames.


Businesses love the NVA. From meetings, away-days, corporate hospitality, full-gallery take-over parties and (of course) team-building in Minecraft we've got you covered! Find out all about it on our Corporate page.
