I saw this and was a little surprised as the Museum of Computing has
an affiliation with the Science Museum, and the Science Museum has a
large exhibits collection at Wroughton airfield about 5 miles South of
Swindon. Given that they've got several aircraft hangers on the site I
would have thought they could have found somewhere to put the Museum
of Computing - the only drawback would be that they might need work on
the buildings to make them suitable for computing equipment rather
than the buses/hovercraft etc.
