If the weather isn’t so sunny-side-up this Easter weekend, why not check out the Museum of Computing and join in with some Easter themed family fun.
The museum – a not-for-profit company run by volunteers – opened in 2003 as the first dedicated computer museum in the UK, and usually offers range of technology-related activities.
However, this Easter, they’re inviting adults and children of all ages to come along and help them find some escaped Easter chicks, and offering a prize to whoever can track down all 10!
As well as this, there’ll be Easter paper craft models to make and take home, ‘egg-stra’ special retro games to play, and you can explore the museum to see some cool stuff from 40 years of computing.
Museum curator, Simon Webb, said: “Keeping kids entertained over Easter break can be a challenge. We’re offering a chance to make stuff, learn stuff, and have some fun.”
The Museum of Computing is open from 10:00am – 4:00pm Good Friday and 9:30am – 5:00pm Easter Saturday, and is located in Theatre Square in Swindon Town Centre, near the library. Admissions are £5 for a whole family, or £2 for adults, £1 for kids, and under 5s go free.
