I really enjoyed visiting the centre, there are a lot of old computing and video games still working and you can use it. It was very exciting and remind me old good times. This is a must see in Cambridge.

Great day out for anyone interested in learning more about technology. Great for people of all ages who want to get hands on rather than the usual trawl around a museum with 'do not touch' signs everywhere!

What an amazing place, we came with our 2 children aged 2 & 6 and they were both thoroughly entertained and had a great time. It was really interactive and getting to use all the computers was such great fun, a blast from the past!! Would thoroughly recommend

I was told about this place by a work colleague, and a quick google showed me something I had no idea existed in cambridge!

It's tucked behind Homebase near the Beehive center. There's not much signage but I'm sure they're working on it.

The staff were very friendly, and the exhibits engaging and interactive.

Being a massive retro gaming geek, it had the perfect blend of interactive exhibits and informative knowledge displays.

£7 for entry was pretty reasonable with the amount of interactive exhibits on show.

This place needs a lot more exposure, as it's a brilliant place (and Cambridge being the 'silicon valley' of East Anglia) and needs the support of it's local community.

An incredible array of old computers, many in working condition. Lots of nostalgia for mature visitors and an eye-opener for the young. It's a little out of the way, but worth the trip.
