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.
No 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 ...
From Ram Yard to Milton Hilton:
Cambridge Consultants – the early years
by Rodney Dale
From Ram Yard to Milton Hilton tells the story of Cambridge Consultants Ltd (CCL) from its foundation at 12A Ram Yard, Cambridge to its moving to a new building on the Cambridge Science Park, Milton Road, the ‘Milton Hilton’ of the title. CCL was founded by Cambridge engineer Tim Eiloart, Rodney Dale and others in 1960 as ‘the first independent contract R&D company in the UK’. Now in its 50th year, Rodney Dale revisits the history he wrote for that move in 1979, adding new material to describe the environment into which CCL was born.
