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!

PC Pro


PC Pro is one of several computer magazines published monthly in the United Kingdom by Dennis Publishing.

PC Pro is a magazine for "IT professionals, IT managers and power users." It contains information on many different aspects of IT (such as cheap hardware, extreme hardware, software, business, home, retailers) rather than just one of these areas like many UK PC magazines. While it is primarily Windows-focused, it does contain some open source and Apple content

The magazine was launched in November 1994. The website was launched in December 1996.

Each issue comes with a coverdisc - either a CD in the 3.99 version or a DVD in the 4.99 edition. The CD contains complete commercial software products (usually older versions) and commercial software trials. The DVD contains these and also a selection of applications which feature in every issue. These regular applications are usually freeware or open source.
Thanks to Jon Haneyball for donating every copy of PC Pro from Issue No 1 November 1994 to February 2010
