TNMOC enables visitors to follow the development of computing from the ultra-secret pioneering efforts of the 1940s through the mainframes of the 1960s and 1970s, and the rise of personal computing in the 1980s - including a newly rebuilt and fully operational Colossus, the world's first electronic programmable computer.

TNMOC receives no government or lottery funding and you will be impressed by the enthusiasm of the staff involved in the project including the many volunteers who regularly give up their valuable time to ensure that this ever growing collection is restored and maintained.

The cost per person (6 years and over) for the whole day is £7.50 and this includes a sandwich buffet lunch with fruit. Registration is only available to BCS members.

A base room will be made available for use during the day with tea, coffee and water freely available all day. The LEGO will be kept in this room so that those who do not complete the competition in the morning will have the opportunity to try it in the afternoon.

Children aged 5-12 will benefit from an interactive trail.

PLEASE NOTE: That children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. BCS take no responsibility for those under 16 years of age.


Adults = £7.50, including VAT, plus booking fees.
