I think you have an excellent case here, interesting exhibits, tour and
history but to prove it it must be challenged!!
Is there a visitor attraction Geekier than Bletchley Park?
Apart from Bletchley park the geekiest place I've been is
Miraikan (Tokyo) which has some great exhibits and including
Asimo and a model internet running TCPIP over pingpong ball(!)
Honrable mentions to
Science Museum London (nach)
National Space Centre, Leicester (if you go there drop by the (free) Abby
pumping station next door)
I like the sound of the NSA Cryptologic Museum
Any other suggestions?
