They have scary eyed mannikins, a toy museum, an olde worlde post office,
a nice manor house, a vintage cinema and a pond with ducks in/on as well as
old computers, old cars, enigma machines, stuff about the war and a
replica bombe. Something for everyone...
"On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you
put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come
out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of
ideas that could provoke such a question."
