" The Turing-Welchman Bombe Rebuild Trust (TWBRT) Bombe is a fully
functional and accurate reconstruction of the wartime Bombe, as designed
by Alan Turing and refined by Gordon Welchman. It was used to discover
the daily settings of the Enigma machines used to communicate
operational messages across enemy military networks.  The funding will
be used to provide a new gallery and move the reconstruction of the
Turing-Welchman Bombe to a new location on the Bletchley Park Estate –
Block H, the home of The National Museum of Computing.  "

Best of luck to them. The National Museum of Computing is definitely a better home for this, especially when it comes to keeping it as a functioning machine.
