The tour will last around 2 hours and cover the full museum collection from the Colossus, war code breaking machines and the history of computing from 1940 to the start of smart phone. Much of what is on display actually works, and the guide will describe how the computers were used, tell anecdotes on their design and operation, and operate some of the equipment.

After the tour you will be able to stay in the museum if you’d like to go back and look at certain computers. TNMOC also has a few old gaming consoles which you’ll be able to play on.
