    StarBase Leicester Away mission: Retro Computer Museum

    Sat, March 4, 2023
    11:00 am - 3:30 pm


    Retro Computer Museum, Leicester

    Hello fellow geeks! Our away missions are back! Trips out as a group to explore new places! First up is the Leicester Retro Computer Museum

    Join us as we check out a hidden gem right here in Leicester, The Retro Computer Museum! This is no look and learn museum you get to play the games and when the bridge crew checked it out (pre covid) they even had arcade machines and VR machines you stand/sit in!

    The museum say it’s best if we buy tickets on the day to benefit from any group rates but if you want a ticket in advance see their website for details. ((an Eventbrite ticket does not count as entry to the museum. Ours are just to confirm numbers))

    Website: https://retrocomputermuseum.co.uk/

    Cost: Adults £7.50 (group rate confirmed on the day)

    Location: Unit A, Troon Way Business Centre, Humberstone Lane, Leicester, LE4 9HA

    Travel: Everyone to meet at the museum for 11am (late arrivals will need their own ticket)

    • If you plan to drive and have spare seats please let others know
    • Bus options include 21 from Haymarket or the 4 with an 11 minute walk (remember the £2 bus fare cap will be in operation)

    Please book an Eventbrite ticket or let the captain know if you plan to attend, again these do NOT give access to the museum, they are just for number checking.

    Covid changes: We will be doing everything in our power to keep people safe with hand sanitizer and fresh air and the reminder to only attend if well.  

    • Please only attend if you feel well your usual
    • You’re welcome to bring sanitizer/wear masks
