One of the major exhibitors at the Vintage Computer Festival at Bletchley Park in June 2010 was The Centre for Computing History.
Documenting the history of computers from the first home computing machine, the Altair 8800 in 1975, to the modern day, the museum currently under construction in Cambridge will be a treasure trove of retro machinery. Formerly based in a warehouse in Haverhill, Suffolk, and operating a policy of visits by appointment only, the team decided that the time was right to move into dedicated premises and make some of the collection open to public viewing. True, visits to Haverhill were easily arranged by e-mail or phone, but the founder wanted something more than a small location known only to a few. These are items which have been used widely in TV and film shoots, so they needed a bigger stage to show their fame.
