5/ 5

Have been here several times and enjoyed the visit each time. They've got lots of different attractions to try and lots of different games you can try out on all the old consoles and equipment. It really brings back the nostalgia of playing Mario Kart on a Super Nintendo system when I was a child. Great fun. It would be further improved if they "gamified" the experience by providing a guide to going around the centre and picking up bits of information / playing certain games / ticking off different things - or provide some other direction for each visitor so that they get around all the exhibits and get the most out of their visit.

Interesting snapshot of an exceptionally important but overlooked part of Cambridge's history. The recent renovation has added more scope and potential to the museum (along with making it more accessible with the addition of a ramp) and it will be exciting to see how it develops over the coming months and years.

A bit like the curate's egg, good in parts. Hopefully it will improve further but needs to be clearer about its purpose. I have visited a couple of times years ago then again just recently following the "partial re-opening". My ticket will allow me to go again when fully re-opened, which is just as well, as my recent visit wasn't a great experience. The huge steam engine is certainly impressive and nicely restored but obviously feels a bit sterile when it is not running. There is a superb scale model of the engine in a glass case in the same room. Clearly a labour of love by somebody with considerable engineering skills. However it doesn't really add a lot and would perhaps be better displayed in a teaching or lecture room rather than right beside the real thing? A new building houses exhibits about Cambridge Instrument Company and Pye telecom. This is a modern, slightly faceless and atmosphere-less collection of equipment in glass cases. Whilst some of it was of considerable interest to me, I suspect the overall appeal is not terribly wide? OK, both companies are part of Cambridge's history but there is no direct ling to this site which was of course a pumping station. The two staff member's I met were pleasant but had no obvious connection with the subject. One of the volunteers fairly rudely prevented me from looking through the open door of a part that is still being worked on. The cafe / pub / venue connected to the site was closed. Perhaps when I return later in the year for my free re-visit it will be wonderful? If that is the intention then there is a lot of work to be done.

A particularly magical place following the recent renovations. I like the new bar area with open smoke fires. A good range of local ales and craft beers and a great gin selection. A definite local secret

I loved my visit to this museum. Parked at Tesco's. Did some shopping so I wouldn't feel guilty about leaving my car, then took the short walk to the museum. It's small with nice exhibits. They're expanding with the PYE radio building. There is an outdoor cafe with comfortable shady places to sit. A very nice morning!

5/ 5

Staff were helpful and the museum was great. I imagine it could be really fun for kids, but just as good an experience for adults. The Pye building was definitely more adult-oriented than the machinery, though.

If you are in Cambridge with kids, don't miss visiting Cambridge Museum of Technology. Informative. Good location. Kids-friendly. You can touch and operate some of the presented items. It's a small museum. We spent their 1 hour and liked the experience.
