Description :

You will be led through the extraordinary advance in technology over
50 years of computing history and discover how computers have not only accelerated our
lives, but radically transformed them. Come and find out how a computer can be
programmed by a strip of paper or what on earth is 01100010 01101001 01101110
01100001 011101010 01111001 (or 'binary' as we humans call it)?

The tour is free (although museum entry charges apply - £9 for adults, £6 for children, £7 for concessions and students, and £26 for a family ticket of two adults and two children). 
Everyone is welcome, but we recommend this tour to those aged 7+.
The tour starts at 2:30pm. Booking is currently required for all entries due to covid restrictions, and the booking will ensure your place on the tour. This booking is equivalent to an afternoon session ticket (13:45-17:00).

Snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Payment is taken by PayPal immediately. Please print a copy of the receipt that is displayed at the end of the payment process and bring it with you as your e-ticket.
At this time, Covid-19 measures are subject to change. Regardless of government guidelines, we will still be requesting that all visitors wear face coverings.



By booking, you are agreeing to comply with our current Covid-secure requirements, detailed on this page: What to expect when visiting during Covid-19.

We request that all groups are limited to 6 people.

We've done a huge amount of work to make the museum a COVID secure environment. We have installed 6 extra hand sanitising stations, created protective covers for our computers allowing us to wipe them down effectively, implemented a booking system and the NHS track and trace system, created 'bubble' zones and all whilst trying to keep the exhibition as interactive as we can.

It is a legal requirement for every person aged over 16 in your group to scan the Track & Trace QR code upon entry. If you do not have a device to do this with, please declare this at front desk on arrival and we will register your details manually.

We do ask you to help us create a safe environment too. We require that you wear a mask, sanitise your hands at each station, and socially distance from others, remaining in your social bubble throughout your visit.

We really look forward to seeing you soon!

Remember - All proceeds go to support our Computing Museum!
