    Take a time to watch what you think is present but is already past.

    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.

    A lot of stuff to enjoy if you like technology. The galleries are explained for all audiences, not only tech experts

    It's a must for every person involved with science, not just for nerds or computer engineers. And the staff is very nice ü

    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.

    Discount on admission closer to closing (2hours?), but need at least 3 hours to fully see everything without rushing. Also Free wifi available!

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

    Eric Friedman · March 2, 2014
  • Jonathan L.

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

    Jonathan Leavitt · March 1, 2014
  • Charlotte W.

    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.

    Plan for a lot of time here. Also the 1 hour cheat sheet is super helpful in not missing the most important things in this jam packed museum.

    Be sure to get here early on Sunday since it closes at 5
