About this Event

About the Museum:

At The National Museum of Computing, voted one of England's 'Top 100 Irreplaceable Places', the evolution of Computing will unfold before your eyes. Journey from the early electro-mechanical code breaking machines of WWII and the world's first entirely digital semi-programmable computer, discovering how technology evolved from valves and early semiconductors to the modern microprocessors we use today. You will uncover the development of large mainframes, supercomputers and scientific mini-computers, responsible for process control from office-based systems to airspace! Finish by exploring the rise of personal computing, mobile computing and the advent of the internet and smart devices, bringing you up-to-date by examining how this technology has revolutionised the way we now interact with machines and each other. Home to the world's largest collection of working historic computers, our fantastic team of friendly and knowledgeable volunteers are on hand to demonstrate the plethora of operational machines in our unrivalled collection. We look forward to welcoming you!
