"It's rather big for a calculator, you know"

Mr Monkey with a ship's figurehead Mr Monkey with a replica of Babbages Difference Engine

Mr Monkey scampered down to level 2. This has an extensive collection of model shipping, and a few bits of real ship, such as this figurehead. At the other end of the floor he found the computing section, where they've built a Babbage Difference Engine No 2, which is more than Babbage ever managed to do.

You can read about the Difference Engine No. 2 at the Science Museum website.
