Visiting the Computer History Museum

Located two miles from the Mountain View Caltrain Station in downtown Mountain View, California, the Computer History Museum is dedicated to preserving and displaying the artifacts and historical legacy of the evolving information age. Visitors to the Museum can see more than 1,000 unique items, watch hundreds of informative videos, and generally learn about the 2,000 years of computing that led up to the Internet-based technologies we rely upon today.

Featuring docent-led tours, demonstrations of antiquated technology, and acclaimed lectures by guest speakers, the Computer History Museum strives to bring the history of computing alive for old and young alike. General admission to the Museum is $15 for adults and $12 for students, seniors, and active members of the military. Computer History Museum members and children under the age of 12 are admitted free of charge. Barring major holidays, the Computer History Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
