    An interesting and fun museum
    This really is an interesting and fun museum. I’m not particularly interested in computers or computer games but we went as my teenage daughter had been before and loved it. Although the museum looks a bit underwhelming at first, it gives a fascinating walk through the history of computing: the people behind the developments and the different models of computers over the years. We spent a lot of time playing with old computers and even more playing old video games. We only allowed 2 hours but we could have spent double that time there and not been bored. I think we’ll have to go back.

    A hidden gem that isn't just for tech heads
    We were visiting family down South and Cambridge was the halfway point between our home in Lincolnshire and theirs in Kent. A quick Google told me about this place and as my husband is a computer geek I knew he would love it. I fully expected to be bored out of my mind for the whole time we were there though. I was greatly mistaken. The musuem is in an out of the way location but it had free parking which was a bonus. I bought a family ticket as it was myself, my husband and our two daughters (8 and 9). The museum is an interesting mix of old and new. As someone who was brought up before computers (just, I'm a Xennial), I found it weird that there could be a "history" to what still feels like "modern tech". However, I was fascinated by the exhibits and then vaguely threatened that things I played with in my youth now feature in a museum and I am now officially old! I loved the nostalgia of seeing an old Betamax machine and remembering Teletext (Teletext was awesome! Why did we get rid of it?! I used to love playing Bamboozle). The children were surprisingly interested in the computer games and especially enjoyed playing the old tennis game on one of the earliest consoles. I completely lost my husband and had to ask the front desk if they had seen him as he was so engrossed he totally left us behind. I spent a lot of time in the museum suddenly yelling things like "oh wow, Lemmings! I loved that game!" and "Look! A floppy disk!" The nostalgia brought great delight and while I was going around feeling old and fantasizing about the days I owned a Nokia 3210, the children were happily playing on all the different consoles. To my surprise they enjoyed the really old games like the text based adventures and Pacman. I thought they would laugh at the old graphics but they thought it was great. I appreciated how hands on the whole museum is with the children actively encouraged to touch and play. I would recommend this place to families with older children (8 upwards). The kids had to be dragged away at the end. A real hidden gem if you have a few hours to kill in Cambridge. Be aware that computers (especially old ones) put out a lot of heat. It got very hot in the museum at times. Leave your outside coat in the car.

    A fabulous place to visit.
    Attended an event here at the weekend. This was the first time visiting and we were astonished at what good value for money it was. This place is huge with so many different exhibits. My husband has had an interest in computers all his life and thoroughly enjoyed seeing hardware he’d used at school and throughout his working life. I enjoyed reading all the displays illustrating the history of computing. Plenty of hands-on displays too and a very cheap tuck shop. With free parking as well this place is a must see for techies and non-techies like myself.

It was a better experience than I initially expected, so it was a pleasant surprise to spend more time than planned! Great value for the visit, and a really cool experience as museums go

    Brilliant place to visit
    We spent a great few hours here. The adults relived our childhoods seeing BBC, Acorn and Spectrum computers and the young really enjoyed the history of gaming. Friendly staff, really informative displays and fun. Well worth the visit.

    Must visit!
    The museum is excellent, loads of interactive displays, many of the computers are usable. Fun features like the 80s classroom and video game consoles were a nice touch. Friendly staff, fun gift shop and cute cafe. We went on a Saturday and it was pleasantly busy, we did not have to queue to try the things we wanted.

    Surprising Find
    We came across this while looking at places to visit on Google. My partner likes his old games consoles so we decided to visit. Was quite a long walk from where we were staying and first impressions of the industrial estate made us question our decision to visit. However, we were very surprised. The museum is full of retro computers and games consoles, many of which you can play on. Theres lots of information about the history of computer programming as well as the consoles themselves. It was £12 each to get in which seemed a lot initially but there is so much to see, it’s definitely worth it. Theres also a basic snack bar and seating area if you fancy a cuppa and a bag of crisps or bar of chocolate
