    I brought my 30 something husband here on Father’s Day for a great afternoon of nostalgia. Since we had our two young kids (under 5), we played a lot of computer games all together that my husband (or I) hadn’t seen since we were kids/teens in the 80’s & 90’s. Even our little kids were greatly entertained. Being a member of the 1st generation that grew up with computers (the X-generation), we really connected with this place. We are telling all our friends about the place and I would like to take my school kids to see it too. The Personal Computer Museum is really unique and has A LOT of potential of being something even more significant on a tourism and academic level. One has to remember when they visit, that the museum has been established, organized and run by volunteers; so don’t expect a place with a gift shop and regular visiting hours. It is not polished like a Science Centre, but instead looks like a fun, inviting, comfortable, jacked-up school computer lab (I say this because of some of the computer clutter stuffed under the counters). It is shocking how well the place is put together considering volunteers did it all. I am also very grateful that the museum also takes in old computer/computer stuff donations (goodbye old junk cluttering my house). So if you are like me and your guy/son still has their old computer kicking around your house taking up room, the PC museum will gratefully take it off your hands and look after it properly to be used for education, and not let it end up being buried as toxic waste in a landfill.

    “sid”, the fat guy who runs this museum is a total hack. Hes so pompous about his collection of trash. Its not worth seeing if your overwhelmed with his Im awesome attitude the whole time.

    If you’re at all into video games or computer history, this is a must see in Southern Ontario.
