Hi Tom:

I’ve placed the set of photos that I took earlier this week (using just my iPhone) at the Heinz Nixdorf museum in Paderborn on the web at http://homepages.cs.ncl.ac.uk/brian.randell/Web-albums/HeinzNixdorf2015/index.html. (The selection of subjects reflects my interests, and gives a far from comprehensive survey of the scope of the museum’s collection.)

I was there for the opening of their special exhibition “It began with ADA - Women in Computer History 2 September 2015 - 10 July 2016”. The exhibition was impressive, though it didn’t provide much analysis of Ada’s contribution. (In contrast to the rest of the museum, all the explanatory notices were provided in English as well as German.) This was my first ever visit to the Museum. Its size and lavishness, and the richness of its collection, were very impressive.
