Batteries Not Included Calendar

12 July 2023 - 25 February 2024


Coming to the museum this summer, Batteries Not Included explores the history and development of football toys and games, their remarkable influence on our lives and understanding of the beautiful game.

Our Score Gallery exhibition takes visitors on an immersive journey, from the Victorian era through to the latest cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) technology, reflecting the cultural influences of each decade and how play technology is now adopted across the professional game.

Best of all, visitors of all ages can get hands-on with a range of football toys and games, taking you on an exciting exploration of play between the real and virtual worlds. Batteries Not Included features no fewer than 17 interactive games and exhibits, including updated takes on classic pastimes, a broad range of arcade video games - and, of course, Subbuteo.
