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!

Produx Calculator

This is an early example of the Produx mechanical pocket calculator which was manufactured in Germany in the 1930s. It was designed by Otto Meuter (1892-1970) who was originally a designer in the Addiator factory but left to start his own businesses. In 1928 he founded Werkstatt Otto Meuter in Berlin and produced the first Produx machines.

It is operated with a tiny stylus with a hook on the end, which is inserted in the holes by the numbers to move them up and down.

This calculator probably dates from circa 1930.
