Eclectic collection of machines from 60s to recent games consoles. Surprisingly nearly all exhibits are very powered up and there to play with, we actually loaded a program from punched tape. I don't know how much their electricity bill is but it certainly made it more engaging. The volunteers are enthusiastic and genuinely interested - that really helped too.
If you've had any interest in computers over the years, or if you are too young to remember these things but are interested in the history, this place is a must. Not only do they have the big serious historical computers, but there is also an amazing collection of historical home computers. Many of these are on and you can play with them. Every time we visit Bletchley Park, we divert here before leaving.
