In what would be a massive blow to the preservation of video game history, the National Videogame Museum in the United Kingdom are seeking donations to make sure they can reopen in the near future. This is due to the museum having to shut their doors last week due to the coronavirus outbreak which was done to protect visitors and staff.
Ian Livingstone CBE, Chair of the BGI and NVM founding patron, said in a press release:
“Coronavirus threatens the very existence of this unique place. The UK’s only museum dedicated to videogames is now under threat. As a new charity which uses videogames to inspire the next generation, we ave no safety net to help the Museum weather the storm. We’ve had the support of some patrons and companies, but without visitors the museum is in grave danger. If you care about videogames, please donate in any way you can”
