This is a fantastic place to visit to learn and reminisce about all things computers, retro video games, old arcade machines, history of the computer (more specifically the history of Cambridge and the computer) and much more. The museum is well laid out but absolutely packed full of computers/consoles all of which you are able to use. It's great to take a trip down memory lane or to discover something new. Reasonable price, lots of events which take place throughout the year and aimed at all ages, perfect for families. The cafe is your normal snack bar so no full meals unfortunatey but the gift shop has plenty on offer with retro related items and other items to remember your visit. Overall it's a highly recommend place to visit if you are in Cambridge and certainly worth it for Computer and Video game enthusiasts.
Really great place to visit to learn about the history of computers, computer games the internet. Lots of interactive stuff to including games to play and computer to program. Will definitely visit again.
