The National Museum of Computing is housed in the first purpose-built computer centre. The collection includes a rebuild of Colossus, the world's first digital programmable computer from 1941, and the WITCH, the world's oldest original working computer as recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records. The museum tells the story of the history of British Computing from the Second World War to today. The museum houses a collection of machines from 1st, 2nd and 3rd generations of computing. It is fun for all ages, with a classroom full of BBC Micros and retro gaming; nostalgia for the adults and hands-on fun for the kids.

The National Museum of Computing runs a successful learning programme during the academic year for schools, colleges and universities. The sessions are facilitated by the engaging and knowledgeable learning guides, and include hands on activities designed to encourage creativity. Special events, such as the STEM girls day, are available on a first come, first served basis.

During school holidays the museum runs family activities as part of the Bytes festivals. These are fun and exciting activities for all of the family, including workshops, talks and games. The activities provide a range of options for people of different ages, to get your kids excited about computers and coding, and also to give them the opportunity to see some of the latest technology, such as Oculus Rift.
