Introduction

Bletchley Park is a living museum attempting to re-create many of the intricate and pioneering machines that helped to win the war. The focus is on the Colossus Rebuild Project which, since the early Nineties, has continued to steadily grow as the re-engineering of its design has unfolded. Both the Turing Bombe and the Tunny rebuilds are complete.

The National Computer Museum is now well established on site and is assembling a collection of all types of machines which naturally follow on from (Colossus) the World's first computer. Across the site all sorts of activities and exhibitions are in evidence; Aircraft recovery; the Home Front; Radar & Electronics; GB2BP Amateur Radio, Model Railways, Military Vehicles; the Churchill Collection and of course the Cryptology Trail.
