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!

Digico Micro 16 Computer

Two young engineers, excited by the potential of minicomputers, formed Digico Computers Ltd in 1966. Avo Hiiemae and Keith Trickett expected their products to sell on their own merits as individual hardware solutions, and they did.

The Micro 16 was Digico's first general purpose minicomputer. Backed by the NRDC (National Research Development Corporation), and without any british-made competition at the time, it quickly became successful, after its release in 1968.
