Victory in Europe WWII

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

On May 8th, 1945, World War II ended in Europe. If you are wondering where to go, Manchester might be a great choice to discover how the war was won. There you will find the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. They have the first Computer with an electronic memory designed by one of the geniuses that broke the Nazi Enigma code, Alan Turing. Every Tuesday, they fire it up and demonstrate how it works. This would be fascinating enough, but the college students who worked with Alan Turing building this incredible machine are there running it. Not only can you get first hand information on how it was designed, but you can find out about the man who was the genius at England’s best kept secret, Bletchly Park.

To see a video of how the machine works, watch this nonrev video. To see more free things to do in Manchester, go to Nonrev Manchester Blog.

Not only does the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry have computers, it has airplanes too. From the Japanese suicide rocket airplane, and the Cherry Blossom, to the Avro Shackelton, the successor to the Lancaster. On Tuesdays, veterans of the Royal Air Force man the museum to explain the collection to visitors. This is another great opportunity to talk to those who made military history. We even go a tour of the inside of the aircraft, see Nonrev Video. To see more deals like these, go to Nonrev Manchester.
