The Atanasoff–Berry Computer was the first electronic digital computer (1937-42). It wasn't programmable though. It can only solve systems of linear equations.
It was rebuilt. Here's the replica
The world's first electronic, digital, computer that was programmable is Colossus.
It was rebuilt in 2007
And here's Z3, computer created by Konrad Zuse. It was built in 1941 and was the first programmable computer featuring binary and floating point arithmetic.

Just check out the BF3 Clubhouse
