The National Museum of Computing (TNMOC) is running virtual tours of its exhibits covering computers from the 1940s through to personal computing devices.
TNMOC said the virtual tour has been made possible thanks to funding from the Milton Keynes Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, enables visitors to stroll through a new, virtual experience – unguided or with one of the museum’s experts for a live, virtual tour where they will gain first-hand insight and knowledge about the 50,000 artefacts in the museum’s collection.

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line my first computer and tell us a bit about what it was and what you used it for.
From August 19, 2020, people will be able to experience the TNMOC's virtual exhibition and interactive, guided tour.
