Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When are you open?
A: We are open Wednesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm (last admissions 4pm). We are also open on Sundays 10am to 4pm ( last admissions 3pm)

Q: What is the Entry Fee?
A: The current entry fee is £7 for adults and £5 for children between 5 and 16. Under 5's are free. A family ticket is available for £20 for up to two adults and two children.  

Q: How do we find you?
A: The museum is at Rene Court in Coldhams Road, Cambridge, CB1 3EW, very close to the Beehive Shopping Centre. From the Beehive Centre, take the 3rd exit off the roundabout into Coldhams Road and go over the railway bridge. Immediately after the bridge there is a very sharp, left hand turn that doubles-back on yourself. Take that turn into the commercial estate and follow the road to your right. Just before the railway crossing, turn into Rene Court on the right and you will see us there.

Q: Do you have a gift shop?
A: Yes indeed we have a selection of gifts and souvenirs to purchase after your visit including t-shirts, mugs, key rings, games and retro items to name just a few. Remember we are cash only at the moment though, sorry!

Q: Are we able to see old computers working?
A: Absolutely! Additionally, many of our exhibits are hands-on so you can actually use them. This has always been the driving ambition of the museum, to allow visitors to interact with past technology and to understand what computing was like from the very beginning.

Q: I'm a Schoolteacher, do you have facilities for educational visits?
A: Yes, definitely. For additional information on the array of exciting educational workshops available at the Centre for Computing History, please see our School Visits page or email us for further details and booking information at:
