Just seen on the BBC Web site (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6291422.stm):

"Plans are taking shape to set up a museum that celebrates Britain's role in the origins of the digital age. 

The National Museum of Computing will be based at Bletchley Park where World War II code breakers built the first recognisably modern computers. 

The museum's centrepiece is the rebuilt Colossus computer that broke high-level German communications during WWII. 

The museum's founders are seeking funds and backers to exhibit more machines from its extensive collection. " <more>
