A coworker who is technologically sophisticated (like time-nuts in 
general, although time is not one of his particular interests) went last 
year (after the renovations essentially paid for by the movie production 
company).  He greatly enjoyed it, especially because they were running 
the Bombe when he was there.  Plenty of opportunity to talk to people 
actually doing stuff, not just docents or tour guides.
