  • Amazing museum! Very interesting and well set up for a free price museum. I'm not a computer nerd, nor an engineer, but I really loved the exhibition! Of course if you are it's gonna be a blast!
  • Completely surprised by this place. Stopped in with minimal expectation and was shocked on the quality of the exhibits and the unique one off items they had on display. It's free but bring some cash to donate so they can keep this fantastic tribute to technology running.
  • Definitely worth the a couple hours of your time. We spent 2 hours here and I don't feel like I took it all in, despite it being a relatively small museum. I thouroughly enjoyed the exhibit on the Enigma encoding machine from WWII, as well as the quantum computing display.
  • One of Bozeman's best kept accidental secrets. One of the coolest museums I've ever been to, with incredible artifacts and information, and it's free! (Make a donation, because they need to stay open) Hard to find, hidden in a building that looks like it could be a dentists office. Worth the adventure to find it.
  • The museum is an amazing place. I've learned a lot and enjoyed the museum for over 3 hours. It was great to see they have many iconic items. The highlight for me was the enigma, but it was also fantastic to see the first home video game system, the vacuum tubes, the apple 1 and many more things. A big thank's to the lady at the front desk who explained a few things to me and who was very friendly.
