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, and we will make them mandatory during workshops for the safety of our staff and other participants.
*If we are still maintaining the 13:15-13:45 closure, your workshop ticket will be valid for a museum visit in both halves of the day.



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!
