To complete our refurbishment of the main gallery and create the permanent exhibition, Tech Odyssey, we need to raise £110,000. Odyssey will provide an opportunity for people of all ages to increase their knowledge, awareness and appreciation of the computing revolution and its global impact.
Please be assured that any amount you feel able to donate will make an immediate and significant impact.
