Needs to find matched funding, though.
It would be a real shame if our nation's unbelievable computing history is allowed to fade into obscurity. I'd urge anyone who can visit this museum to do so, and if you can't then perhaps a small donation in recognition of the influence this has had on all of us wouldn't be too much to ask.
Wot 'e said. Also, if you're on a budget, you don't have to pay the (quite high, in my opinion) Bletchley Park entry fee: just tell 'em at the desk you're here for TNMOC, and they'll let you through for free. You'll then just have to pay £5 (£2.50 concessions, free for under 12s) at TNMOC itself.
Visited this fab place last weekend it was a brill day, even though the wife thought is was going to be boring, even she was surprised at the amount of history there.
It was a huge contributing factor to the outcome of WWII. That should be interesting to anyone with a passing interest in anything interesting.
Not just WWII, but the dawn of computing - British computing was at the forefront of technology and innovation. British computers were the first to be used for corporate business applications (stock control and payroll for Lyons Tea Houses).
British computing technology was a world-class leader. It's taken 50 years for that power to come back in the form of ARM.
Still beggars belief that TNMOC isn't classified as a proper National museum. How ministers don't think its an institution that holds collections considered to be of national importance is beyond me.
Mr Sheen is much cheaper
