Computing History Cambridge Games Podiums

The Centre for Computing History is much more than a museum. Based in Cambridge, it hosts hands-on exhibitions, educational workshops and a wide range of activities and events. Most importantly, it makes the history of computing relevant and fun for all ages!

We are open 7 Days a Week during summer 2017.  Click here for more details on our opening hours.  We hope to see you very soon!
