Computing History Cambridge Games Podiums

The Centre for Computing History is in Cambridge. It integrates history with computer science and education. And it makes the history of computing relevant and fun!

We hope you'll visit our most unusual museum very soon, perhaps enjoy a guided tour or participate in some of the many events we have scheduled throughout the year. 

Our core purpose is to increase understanding of developments in technology over the past 50 years through exploring the social, cultural and historical impact of the computing revolution.
