Day Out at Bletchley Park: Code Cracking and Computer Fun

Bletchley Park

After a long car drive to Bletchley Park, the first vehicle we came across was actually a vintage motorcycle.  The codes that were brought to the code cracking experts Bletchley park on moterbikes like this one were delivered by women during world war two.

The McAfee exhibit in the museum was all about codes and computers today.  It was quite scary to read just how much information is stored about each of us online.

There were some cool interactive elements in the exhibit too.  Our nephews Greg and Cody had fun playing with the interactive touchscreens.

We learnt so much about online safety for adults and children.  The leap from technology in WW2 to 2014 was quite breathtaking to see up close.

  1. This sounds really neat! Thanks for the cool post. There was once a setup from McAfee at Grand Central Station as I was passing through which would say things to you like "It's time to change your password!" and "Your identity is not safe!" It was so creepy.

  2. This sounds like a really interesting place to visit. I bet those WW2 code carriers never thought we'd be where we are today.
