  • Been meaning to go to this place for years and when I finally got there it did not disappoint. my kids were a bit doubtful but when they saw the games on offer they got stuck in and really enjoyed themselves. The owners were charming and always on hand to help out or answer questions. I loved to see the computers of my youth and play missile command on a BBC Model B again. Great place, would highly recommend and looking forward to my next visit.
  • An unexpected gem. Our visit started with a nicely pitched quiz so that our children studied the history of computers and gaming, which was well researched and presented. They were then able to have a couple of hours absorbed playing family friendly classics on x-box, ps2 and Nintendo game cube. Meanwhile young and old pitted their skills against one another on classic arcade games, with youngsters noting their surprise that their parents gaming skill. I also enjoyed the trip down memory lane seeing the displays of the home computers and technology since the 1980s, while learning much about the gaming and device history of those days and earlier. It is such an interactive place reviving immensely fun games. It is an inspiring labour of love of the charming couple who have put in so much time and presumably covered so much of the cost of running the place for others' enjoyment - apparently the technology has been collected over a long period - thank you so much. It was a privilege to be there. We can't wait to return.
  • The micro museum is a small yet fantastically well furnished and interactive museum. All the staff are passionate about the subject and are very knowledgeable about old computers. Another awesome thing about this museum is that they have many computers/consoles out and switched on ready for anyone to use and have fun with. Some of the rarer or older computers, such as the Sega 32X or some of older Apple computers are are kept in the back behind glass. In conclusion though, if you like technology even just a tiny bit, then I think you'll love this place.
  • Great idea for an alternative museum. Only a small place but stacked with all of the early computers from the 70s and 80s. Cheap entry fee (£3) and the friendly staff will sort out some old games to ay if you want as well. Worth a look.
  • Despite thinking this visit would be solely for my grandchildren (aged 12 and 14), their parents and we, their grandparents, loved it so much and found it so interesting, and in some cases nostalgic(!) that we intend to return, despite living at various distances from the venue. The owners and staff are more than helpful, but not intrusive. There is a vast array of computers, games, telephones, adding machines, cameras, toys and much more. One visit is not enough. Do tell your friends - of all ages - they will be glad you did.
