The Science Museum in London (England) is arranging a series of tours of its
storerooms of items not normally on display. see:

The one on March the 16th next year is on the computing collection

>From valves to chips: the rise of British computing with Tilly Blyth
Wednesday 16 March 2005, 14:00 - 15:30
Britain has always played an important role in the development of computing
technology. This tour will take you from an era when computers occupied
whole rooms and Britain was at the forefront of computer research, to a new
generation of programmers created by personal computers such as the BBC
Micro and the Sinclair.

An hour and a half isn't much time for this but it could well be
interesting. I hope I've booked a place on this, but I haven't had
confirmation yet.
