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!

Beta Disk Interface

The Beta Disk Interface was manufactured by the UK company Technology Research Limited in 1984. Originally retailing at £109.25 (excluding disk drives) it allowed a Spectrum to interface to Shugart-compatible single- or double-density 3.5" or 5.25" floppy disk drives. The expansion connector is carried through to the rear of the unit, allowing additional expansion modules to be connected. The included EPROM contains the TR-DOS operating system. Up to four disk drives can be run from the interface.
