  • Lovely place, well set out, plenty to do. It gets a bit chilly in the main warehouse so if you plan to go for several hours on a cold day wear thick socks! Kids loved it, hubby was amused and I loved reading all the history. We will definitely visit again!
  • The museum itself is great. Plenty to look at for the computer history enthusiast. Only thing is the signage to find it is non existent. Had to stop in Topps Tiles to ask where it was. They very kindly pointed me in the right direction. Obviously I am not the only one that struggled to find it as they said they have 10-15 people a week going in to ask... maybe something you could look at??
