The father of modern computing currently has an exhibition on in the science museum. The first we heard of it was seeing a poster at South Kensington tube station on route to somewhere else.
Taking over the right side of the ground floor, it dedicates half of this to his work in Bletchley park and on computing and the other half to matters more spiritual.

The stand out shot for me is of a small bottle of female hormones backlit with an explanation beside it. This was to curb his homosexuality, in lieu of a year in prison. Being gay was a punishable crime right up until the 1960s when the practice was decriminalised.

It finishes off with a short interactive bit, which allows you to program a robotic tree through an Arduino piputer controller. (Incidentally Piputer really should be a word it just rolls off the tongue).
