The Museum of Computing

We took a trip out to the Museum of Computing in Swindon. I’ve always thought that having a small museum like this where people could play on consoles from their childhood would be a good idea, it looks like this place beat me to it.

My favourite room had to be the one that most people passed through all too quickly. I especially enjoyed playing on the Spectrums and the much loved Atari ST.

There were also cabinets about the place which the various decades’ models on display (incidentally, the 80s cabinet houses most of the contents in my loft backing up my theory that they’re a good investment).

There was a nice cabinet of retro handhelds too and was very pleased to see my two favourite games I had in there. Sadly they’ve been binned many many years ago.
