The first museum in the UK dedicated to computing faces eviction

Museum of Computing gets uprooted

The Swindon based Museum of Computing is looking for a new site, following its scheduled eviction once the University of Bath moves out of its Oakfield campus in July.

The museum, which is sponsored by Intel, has over 2,000 hardware exhibits and 2,500 software items from various eras in computing history – examples of which are the Magnavox Odyssey 1, the first TV video game, and the Atari 2600.

It is looking for a new location with 75 square meters of exhibition space and 100 square meters of storage space.

The museum can be contacted on
