2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

Museum features on Old Gold Tech

The Centre for Computing History is the latest subject of a two part special of the web TV show - Old Gold Tech.
Presenters and Old Gold Tech founders Nic and Neil are avid fans of technology, especially the old stuff, from reel-to-reel tape decks to the late great game consoles. They both have a lot of this great tech at home and showcase it on thier web TV show.

Nic and Neil were amazed at the shear amount of equipment at the museum and spotted many retro gadgets and tech that they hadn't even seen before.
On the Old Gold Tech website Neil said "A big thank you to the guys at the Centre for Computing History for letting OGT film and play with some of the coolest and historically important technology of the last 20 years. Nic and I had a blast, and were overwhelmed with the volume of retro computers, toys and gadgets on display."
Equally Jason, and other volunteers Andy Taylor and Duncan Woodward loved having the OGT guys here at the museum and had a great time.
Checkout their webiste : to watch the online show which is a must for any retro tech enthusiasts ...
They'll be posting a second show soon that wanders around the museum, so keep an eye on the OGT website or follow them on twitter : @oldgoldtech
