Retro Collective

Welcome to the Retro Collective

Hands-On Vintage Technology Museums

Set across two floors of a listed mill in Stroud, UK, the Retro Collective is a visitor attraction comprising two hands-on retro technology and gaming museums, The Cave and Arcade Archive.

With an expanding assortment of old computers, consoles and arcade cabinets to try out, there is a whole history of technology and gaming to explore across several nostalgic exhibits, including a comprehensive retro magazine archive and recreated high street store.

Both museum spaces are open for public and corporate bookings.
