Museum of Computing Museum of Computing

The Museum of Computing, based in the centre of Swindon at Theatre Square, is home to the history of both computing and digital development. Not only does it hold a repository of artefacts, but has active displays as well as providing a forum of provision lectures.

The museum functions as a hub of digital and interactive learning, inspiring all ages to get involved. It offers a wide range of exciting opportunities for kids in a friendly and supportive environment.

The museum also welcomes school visits and has recently developed a new education programme to provide creative and interesting sessions to classes where children can learn and interact with various types of software, programmes and materials.

The Museum of Computing is also committed to adult learning courses with the recent introduction of the BBC First Click course which aims to help the over 55s to gain confidence with using computers and accessing the internet.

Admission: Adults £2, Children £1, Concession £1.50, Family £5
Opening times: Friday 10:00-16:00 & Saturday 09:30-17:00
