  • Don't pass this one by. It has a lot of interesting information and exhibits. Enigma machine!
  • Very cool experience. They have a lot of extremely interesting computers and general technology from the 1900's. I would definitely recommend going. Please do be mindful that it is a non-profit organization and admission is free but donations are very helpful.
  • While it may seem quiet and unassuming from the outside, this museum if filled to the brim with fantastic exhibits and materials. I can spend the whole afternoon in here as an adult, and my kiddos stay occupied for a long time too! Admission prices are on a donation basis.
  • A very interesting exhibition showcasing everything from a Babylonian stone tablet to the Apollo mission's onboard computer! Highlights include: -) The first ever personal calculator (signed by inventors) -) Copy of Altair Basic (signed by Gates and Allen) -) A missile guidance system (onboard computer) -) Many original historic documents including accounts of payments to Samuel Morse by the US government and several original war telegraphs from Lincoln's time -) A NASA ground control mainframe (last of its kind) -) An ant's brain (under a microscope, of course) Plus an exhibition dedicated to the history of the Enigma machine and the Turing Bombe. The staff were extremely friendly! Admission was free but donations were welcome.
  • Wonderful display from Cuneiform to the latest communications and technology. Enigma display and description on Bomba de-coders was fabulous. I highly recommend a tour for all ages.
