The Computer History Museum By Craig Jensen

Located in Mountain View, California, the Computer History Museum is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and displaying artifacts and technologies of the information age. Officially established in 1999, the museum stores one of the largest collections of computer relics in the world, including hardware, software, photographs, moving images, and documents.

The museum offers access to many of its exhibits online and even provides some Internet-only exhibits. However, many exhibits are only available at the museum itself. The most recent exhibit, Revolution, premiered in 2011. Revolution gives visitors a chance to learn about the first 2,000 years of computing through 19 alcoves, each covering a different aspect of computing. Additionally, the museum provides access to education programs, including classes, discussions, and events. The majority of these programs are free to the public.

The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit http://www.computerhistory.org to plan your visit.
