Bletchley Park is great for its own exhibition, plus it has the UK's national museum of computing:

You might like to read my book, The Geek Atlas, which contains many places related to the history of computing.

It's not exactly what you outline, but The Geek Atlas by John Graham-Cumming lists many places that would fit the description "hacker tourism." It's a travel guide... but it's published by O'Reilly!

I recently wrote The Geek Atlas ( The main tool I used was XMLMind XML Editor since the book was marked up using DocBook XML. Before I started doing the XML work I was writing using emacs.

Once the writing was done I submitted it to the publisher via SVN (each book had its own project) and then the book was converted to a PDF. I then used Adobe Acrobat Reader to mark up changes based on the proofread and copyedit. The book was actually put together in Adobe InDesign but I had nothing to do with that.

In my book [1] (yes, I know that's a blatant plug), I cover a number of interesting places in Silicon Valley that are not covered in this article including the original homes of Fairchild and Shockley Semiconductor.

It's a pity that he mentioned the Tech Museum in San Jose though, it's really very poor IMHO.
