Experience the computer history of the world at this incredible event hands-on. Numerous collector exhibits, plus the entire museum to explore.

Of interest is a private collection of Japanese computers:
“Through the dawn of the computer age, Japan had its own separate ecosystem of personal computers that did not reach Western shores. This exhibit aims to show several different running examples of some of the more impressive platforms that most of the West missed out on – namely the X68000, PC-98, and MSX2+.”
