Take a short walk from Ramsgate’s historic Royal harbour, up the High Street towards St. George’s Church on Church Hill and you will find Kent’s only Computer Museum.

Providing fun for all ages, whatever the weather, and now in its fourth season, The Micro Museum is dedicated to the history of computing and how the digital world began. It is the showcase for a unique private collection of vintage home computers, games, toys and more, gathered together by the owners. Visitors will find displays of devices from the early 20th to the 21st centuries along with history beginning with the time when man first found a way to count.

• DISCOVER the history of computing and the ideas, the inventors and inventions of the digital age.
Pick up a history quiz when you arrive and use it as a fun way to learn some interesting facts. Find all the right answers and you will be awarded a Museum certificate.
Younger visitors can do a toy hunt to earn their own mini certificate.

• At the heart of the Museum is the large collection of early personal computers. Indulge in some NOSTALGIA and see if you can spot your first computer.

• PLAY on classic games consoles - up to 3 hours included in the admission price.

There will be a themed games event every month during the 2017 season.

The Micro Museum is a Winner of a Pride In Thanet Tourism Award and Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
