Went with two teenage sons who found my nostalgia with the computers of my youth hilarious :-) We all learned a lot about the code breaking and everybody we spoke to was knowledgeable and happy to chat and explain.

As a middle aged computer geek, the NMC definitely pushed my buttons! An excellent selection of historical computer hardware and exhibits, including a working rebuild of the Colossus machine used at Bletchley Park during the war. The staff there clearly knew their stuff and were...More

Depending on how much information you want to glean, I would allow at least two hours. If you want to also take a tour in the Tunny and Colossus Galleries then I would allow 4 hours. Hope that helps.
