Much more than a museum, it hosts hands-on exhibitions, learning workshops and a wide range of events. Most importantly, it makes the history of computing relevant and fun for all ages!

Located in Cambridge, the Centre’s vision is to increase understanding of developments in technology over the past 50 years through exploring the social, cultural and historical impact of the computing revolution.
