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.
