  • This is separate from Bletchley and has an additional charge but is a must see as it's a recreation of the computer that cracked the code.  more »

  • Many very interesting items on display, but, as many others have noted, the arrangement of the place is very randomly organised, with little explanation given beyond a date and a name. I did very much enjoy the working demonstration of a ticker-tape programmed machine, that was delivered with great skill by a very interesting individual with a clear love of the subject. Worth a visit? Yes, especially if you want to explore and remember all the gadgets from your past you thought were gone forever.
  • Excellent history behind almost all of the computers here, would definitely go again. If you want to go, look at Colossus. The Witch is also worth a visit.
  • I was quite disappointed and was expecting much better. Some interesting exhibits, and old computers. But it felt very scruffy and tired. There was not enough information on exhibits, it could be more interactive, my kids who love computers were very bored. Exhibits scattered around with no explanation making them feel random exhibits. The volunteers did not interact with the customers aside from one who was intent on trying to outwit a six year old. In comparison the museum at Cambridge feels far more fun and interactive.
  • Good, but sort of masquerades as a kind of proxy Bletchley park, slightly confusing to guests. . . Pls dont dedox me, youll never get my ip address
  • A truly unique place. A very interesting link with the ww2 codebreakers next door and lots of ecentric enthusiastic staff.
