The National Museum of Computing

Last Sunday I started off my day by visiting the National Museum of Computing, located in Bletchley Park. We got to see old working computer systems, including a rebuilt computer called Colossus Mark 2.

Colossus was a set of computers developed by British codebreakers during the second World War to help in the cryptoanalysis of the Lorenz cipher, which I discussed in my last Blog.

I got to see the giant disk of an old hard drive that could store 4 Megabytes on each side. Also in the museum were replicas of the „Bombe“ (also discussed in my last blog). All in all I had a great time seeing the exhibition of old computer artifacts and would recommend a visit for anyone.
