Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Or come and get involved on our social media channels ...

An Introduction to BASIC 2 on the Amstrad PCs Date: 1988 An Introduction to BASIC 2 on the Amstrad PCs

"The aim of this book is to teach you to program the Amstrad PC1512 and PC1640 computers in Locomotive BASIC 2. It assumes no prior knowledge of computers or programming, and it is hoped it will show that BASIC programming is not nearly as difficult as it might appear at first sight, and can be both interesting and enjoyable."
