    Amazing collection of historic computers, all really well displayed. Apparently the Babbage Difference Engine will return to its owner mid-2016 so come to see it in action while you still can!

    Fun, stimulating way to get a thorough overview of the history of computing all the way back to the abacus! Make it a day trip — there's quite a lot to see.

    The best place to get known about history of semiconductors, computers and technology at all. After 1:00 PM you could sit inside of Google self drive car.

    There's a lot of tech history inside this place. If you want to know how many of the gadgets you use today was conceived, this is the right place.

    Checkout the old ad campaign remnants where they used old computer chips to make insects - in a glass case on the second floor.

    Nothing much on mobile. But after all, it's a *computer* museum, not a phone Museum. Much to learn anyhow.

    From what I saw it isn't worth the price of admission. Not enough exibits to hold interest for more than half an hour. Better off at the Tech Museum in San Jose.
