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!

School Visits - We Can Visit YOUR School!

If you are unable to visit our museum, we can bring some of our exhibits to you! 

Our schools outreach programme is designed to address key parts of the computing curriculum without the need of arranging expensive transport, cover staff and permissions.

We currently have two exciting workshops available. Click on the images below for full details.

Computing Curriculum - School Visits

Learn to Code - 80s Style!

We will bring a set of 15 BBC Micro computers complete with the original monitors and programming guides. 

Computer Curriculum - School Visits

Pop-Up Museum

We can bring a mini version of the museum to you! This fascinating, interactive display will allow your students to experience the machines of another era. They will gain an understanding of how the the mainframe computers of the '60s and '70s became small enough to evolve into personal computers and mobile devices, and how computing has become so pervasive in our lives today.
