Personal computers are EVERYWHERE now, but did you know at some point not everyone had one? That’s right kids!
At the Personal Computer Museum, you can explore the LARGEST collection of microcomputers, video discs and video games in the entire nation. It’s not only a history lesson, but a walk down memory lane!
Parents, you can remember your own history – of your first computer, that great Atari, your favourite Xerox, and kids can learn all about the progression and development of something that is so valuable in life today!
Kids – have you ever heard about a “mouse” – and we don’t mean the kind that squeak! Have you ever seen a “green screen”, or head that famous AOL dial up sound? You’re in for a treat if you want to know how computer life used to be!
The Personal Computer Museum also has over 45 interactive displays from over 1,000 computers. With 25,000 artefacts in the collection, and over 5,000 on display at any one time.
Whether it’s the large software library with a great collection of video games, or the interactive computer area, or the reading area – the museum has something to offer everyone!
So why not put down those super fancy XBox’s, and iPads, and head to a place where you can take it back to the IBM, Next, and Amiga – where computers began and history can be re-lived!
