Who are we?
GameBytes is the online charity shop for the Centre for Computing History.
As a museum and registered charity, many retro gaming and retro computing items are donated to us. Items that are not already in the museum collection are archived and become part of the Centre's collection. With items that we already have in the collection we use the donations either as handling stock for exhibitions or they are sold, with the signed agreement of the donor, on this website to raise funds to help support the museum.
Most donors are very pleased to find that even unwanted items can help the museum.
Can I donate?
Yes! We would really appreciate your support. But we'd be grateful if you could contact us beforehand.
If you are able to deliver your donations to The Centre for Computing History in Cambridge, we would be very pleased to accept them. If you have a quantity of items and are able to pack them up securely, we may be able to arrange collection by courier - please contact us.
All goods sold through this website have been donated to the Centre for Computing History. Donated items given to raise funds for a charity are zero-rated for VAT, so no VAT will be applied to your purchases.
