school childrenThe Centre has a four and a half star rating with reviewers praising its “interactive displays”, calling it a “must-see for techies and non-techies" alike. One visitor commented, “We only allowed 2 hours, but we could have spent double that time there and not been bored.” Feedback from a happy parent said, “I appreciated how hands-on the whole museum is with the children actively encouraged to touch and play. The kids had to be dragged away at the end. A real hidden gem!”

"We are delighted our unique museum has been recognised as a top destination,” said Lisa McGerty, CEO at the Centre for Computing History. "We work hard to create an unforgettable visitor experience, offering hands-on exploration of how these powerful devices became part of our lives and changed our world in just 80 years. Our full calendar of summer events includes opportunities to try electronics soldering, explore tech designed in Cambridge, and even see a robot solve a Rubik’s cube – so we’re looking forward to welcoming lots more visitors!"

"We’re grateful for all the support from the Cambridge community. Without vital support from sponsors and visitors we would not be enjoying this success.” 

“Congratulations to The Centre for Computing History on its recognition in Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2024,” said John Boris, Chief Growth Officer at Tripadvisor. “Travellers’ Choice honours businesses that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.
