We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

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!

EDSAC

The EDSAC was the world’s first stored-program computer to operate a regular computing service. Designed and built at Cambridge University, the EDSAC performed its first fully automatic calculation on 6 May 1949. The Warwick
University simulator is a faithful emulation of the EDSAC designed to run on a personal computer. The user interface has all the controls and displays of the original machine, and the system includes a library of original programs, subroutines, debugging software, and program documentation

EDSAC 2 was a successor to the Electronic Delay Storage Automatic Calculator. It was the first computer to have a microprogrammed control unit and a bit slice hardware architecture and was introduced early in  1958
EDSAC II
