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!

Established as an educational charity to tell the story of the Information Age, the Cambridge Computer Museum presents a collection of important computers and related artefacts. 
 
Exhibitions spotlights the people behind the inventions and their stories, to inspire and enthuse future generations.
 
The Cambridge Centre for Computing History is the only museum in Europe to focus solely on the social and historical impact of the personal computer.

The computing industry has a fascinating history. In a very short space of time it has created the world's wealthiest man, witnessed some of the worst business decisions on record and generated the largest first year profits for any company in history!
 
The people, the inventions and the machines that have played key roles in this ongoing and influential story are all here.
