  • Great museum to learn about the history of computers but being able to see them working and use them too. Connecting the steps to where we are today. 
  • This was a great hands-on museum with enough history of computers to satisfy those looking for traditional museum experience but also almost all hands on to satisfy the kid in all of us. A free tour i...  read more »
  • Feeling like a kid while playing games I grew up playing. Seeing the massive super computers we used to learn and grow into what we use everyday. Experiencing the history leading us to what we use in our daily lives. The museum is inspiration, simply awe inspiring. The talent and determination represented in this growing spot is fun and useful. We know where to go because of where we have been. The staff are super friendly and willing to help with education of what you are seeing. Learning things that I did not even know. This is a must do. Hope you have fun on your experience.
  • This place is a fascinating journey through the history of computers. Brush up on your knowledge of BASIC, Linux+GNU interfaces, and early windows as you explore the history of computing. Still under construction, the displays they have now are absolutely worth a visit, and with student ID it is a mere $4 for general admission (see everything at your own pace).
  • Very intresting to see how far we have come in such a short time with computers. I loved that all the machines were working and you could interact with the terminals on many of the machines. Even my wife enjoyed it. They sell raspberry pi kits at the store so this is a great way to get kids intested in computers and programing.
  • Delighted, amazed, and nostalgic to see these old computers alive! And you can touch them, launch applications, and play games on them. Also very friendly staff! A true gem and unique opportunity to learn about and interact with historical computers (including Xerox Alto, Apple Lisa, Apple Mac, Windows 1.0 PC, 1950s giant computers, etc that are still running).
  • Really cool place. You're free to play around with almost all of the old computers. It really gives you a sense of perspective how far we've come in computing. I highly recommend this place if you're even remotely interested in technology.
