The title (The National Museum Of Computing) leads you to believe that this is the British view of computing through the recent ages, say 1940s onwards. It's not; this is a fervently-supported display and working recreation of the code-breaking machinery that was created during WW2,...More

Depending on how much information you want to glean, I would allow at least two hours. If you want to also take a tour in the Tunny and Colossus Galleries then I would allow 4 hours. Hope that helps.
