I didn't have high expectations for this place when my son asked to if we could check it out. However, I was pleasantly surprised by all of the amazing and educational displays. The museum is packed with information from the beginning of the computer era...More

This is a free museum in Bozeman. It is well worth the time exploring all the rooms of exhibits. There is a replica Enigma machine (there had been an original one) and a video which was very interesting.

Any geek or space buff would be foolish to miss this gem of a museum. Great artifacts and also great stories told well. Compact yet powerful (and a hoot to see some of the very old desktop computers and older specimens). Wish we didn't have...More

Having spent over 35 years with the government in data processing, this free museum was a great find. The displays start off with man's first efforts at written communication and goes forth from there. Gutenberg, Babbage, Hollerith, Jobs, Wozniak, Hopper; stories and displays about them...More

Yes, I am a 60 year old geek that loves history, but I think this place would amaze most people. Science, mystery, history,biology, WWII, ENIAC, it's beautifully done. Volunteers are super.

This museum may be small but it is an awesome place to visit. It is very educational and fun to see the past history on how things started on writing to computer and technology. Some of the things in the museum I remember seeing them...More

Thank you for your question. No, Paul Ceruzzi was not involved in the establishment of this museum. He is a good friend - but the museum was founded by my wife Barbara and myself. Best, George Keremedjiev
