Description :

The museum has about 44,000 items in its collection. All are important to us, but some have extra special tales to tell. For this short tour, we are exploring the Cambridge story.

Our collection includes some of the city's rich heritage, from parts of EDSAC, the University's first computer, to early versions of the Raspberry Pi. We'll revisit old favourites such as Sinclair and Acorn machines, and learn about some of the more surprising exhibits that have their roots in Cambridge. Join us as we take a look back at Cambridge's computing past.

The tour is free (although museum entry charges apply - £12 for adults, £8 for children, £10 for concessions and students, £25 for a family ticket of one adult and two children, and £32 for a family ticket of two adults and two children). The ticket includes entry to the museum for the whole day. Please note that children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
