Established as a pioneering educational charity to tell the story of the Information Age, the Cambridge computer museum  presents a collection of important computers and related artefacts.
 
The Cambridge Centre for Computing History is the only museum dedicated to the social and historical impact of computers in Europe.

The history of the computing industry is a fascinating subject. In a short space of time, it has created the world's wealthiest man, witnessed some of the worst business decisions on record and generated the largest first year profits for any company in modern history!

Here are the people, inventions and machines that have played key roles in this on-going and influential story.

CCH is a charity, and we depend on supporters like you to help us care for and display our exceptional collections. Please consider making a donation today.
