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!

CMLEO/PB - Peter Bird Collection

Peter Bird (1934-2017), historian of Lyons and LEO, gathered a collection of documents, photographs and other material in preparation for his pioneering book LEO - The First Business Computer (1994). These then passed to the LEO Computers Society, and have been loaned to the Centre for Computing History for digitisation and cataloguing as part of the project 'Swiss Rolls, Tea and the Electronic Office'.

Find out more about Peter Bird on his biography page in LEOPEDIA.

His Lyons research papers have been donated to the London Metropolitan Archive (their ref ACC/3527).
