In January, this museum opened R:Evolution, a $19 million exhibit about the first 2,000 years of computing. It includes the first commercially available microprocessor, 1971's Intel 4004.
"Small but important, this museum is the real deal with almost every artifact of the computing and pre-computing age (make sure you check out their events calendar)"
Gives you an incredible look back into the history of something we now take for granted. And how old it really is:-)
Go to the Computer History Museum and sit on the bench that runs around the Cray-1 supercomputer
After demo day, come to NYC to visit or start your business. You won’t regret it.
Find out the difference between a PDF and a PDP.
The museum is really nice, there are plenty of things to see and several videos that explain the history of modern computers. A little shop for geek toys also available.
Come at 1pm for the difference engine demo.
A fantastic collection of computational paraphernalia that puts into context the rapid rise of Silicon Valley. Highlights for me included the PDP-1, the Xerox Alto, and Google's first server rack.
Where else could this be but Silicon Valley?
Come early, there are lots of exhibitions, videos and demos to see! Definitely loved my time here. A must place to go if you love computers. Awesome and passionate staff as well.
1st & 3rd Saturdays - catch the brilliant PDP-1 demo and play the first computer with explosions - Spacewar! from 1962. I meet it's author Steve 'Slug' Russell!
Attended this place sometime back
If ya want to meet some very hot and very single PhDs past their 40s, this is the place to be.
Site of the most awesome Stanford GSB party every year
this is the perfect place for a romantic date. if ya wanna let the special person in your life what's up, double down on the "geek package" nothing says love like rows of silicon and foreign tourists
This place is awesome!
Of note: Microsoft is virtually absent in this telling of the story (and software is pretty light in general). I'm biased but still surprised by it.
The world's largest history museum for the preservation and presentation of artifacts and stories of the Information Age.
You too might put $222.78 worth of presents into your flight bag here.
It's simply amazing. And huge. Plan for all day, if you are gonna stay and read/watch video exhibits information. For me, one day was not enough.
Bring out of towners here on a tour of silicon valley, this was once an SGI building.
Microsoft company party
Check out the Babbage Machine , it was designed in the 1830s but could not be built because of its great cost. The machine was built using Babbage's design in the 1990s and worked perfectly!
Check out amazing geek-themed gift shop
Closed Mondays & Tuesdays.
great place to visit
The Babbage engine exhibition is nice and fun! The guy is really funny.
Very interesting museum.
Come check out our @marsdd booth at #StartupGrind 2013 and meet three amazing Canadian startups - @thehammerati @notesolution @tout_it
Check out the google maps car.
Pay extra for the binary t-shirt! I love mine.
Walk around slowly and watch all the videos for the exhibits, you will appreciate the technology more.
Revolution exhibition is very good made, it's worth to visit everyone even those who considers oneself not much interested in computers. I bet you like it, it's not boring.
For the nerd in all of us
Good: see just about every (in)significant piece of hardware ever created. Not good: very little interactivity; lots of reading and not much more.
Best museum in the world for Computer Engineers and Maths Professionals!
I could spend all day in this museum. Check out the gallery of games and consoles and see if you can spot a Dreamcast, Master System, Saturn and Genesis. - Kate, Assistant Community Manager
Previous tip wrong. Is $15 / $12 students to get in, not free.
Play a game of pong... Show the grandkids how it used to be!
Download some apps on the Difference Engine...
As one already said, you cannot see this all in one day (we were given a special viewing for IEEE Sections Congress from 7-10pm and only got to see half of it while running through the rest)
will definetly go there in OCT..
Лучшее место на земле найдено
Muy bueno, visita obligada de cualquier nerd. Cási lloro con la máquina de Charles Babbage, hay cachos de ENIAC, JOHNNIAC, está la PDP-1, CRAY-1 ...
