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.

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

Description :


How can a computer be programmed by a strip of paper?  Why does a huge block of old-fashioned memory have less capacity than a tiny chip in a mobile phone?  What on earth is 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 011101010 01111001 (or 'binary' as we humans call it)?  

 

These questions and more will be answered by a guided tour of the Centre.  You will be led through the extraordinary advance in technology over 50 years of computing history and discover how computers have not only accelerated our lives, but radically transformed them.

 

The tour is free as part of standard admission to the Centre.  It begins at 2pm and lasts around forty minutes.  Our staff will be on hand after the tour to answer any questions you may have.

Booking is not required but will ensure your place on the tour. 

Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
