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!

Or come and get involved on our social media channels ...

In 1964  Thomas Kurtz and John Kemeny, (members of the Dartmouth mathematics department) developed a 'language' that computers could use to accept 'input' and produce 'output'.  BASIC (Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) became the first known computer language.
