This place is hard to find because it's located in an office building area surrounded by doctors offices. No obvious signage or anything either. Just look for the address and you'll be fine. We were expecting a small, someone uninteresting, place and were blown away by our actual experience. This place is packed with history and intriguing (original) displays of... More

The ACM has excellent displays of older and newer computer-related equipment, along with visual interpretations. Must visit, near the Museum of the Rockies, ACM also sponsors talks!

I have visited the Computer Museum three times. Each time I wonder why I don't go more often. This gem of a museum is a little out of the way, but well worth it. Get a guided tour if you can by calling in advance. They have some fabulous things in the collection.

Wonderful! Amazing to find a place like this in an out of the way place like Bozeman. The amount of important historical computer and communication hardware means that it has something for everyone. It also combines history with a look into the future with areas on Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Neural Computing.

We happened to stumble on this small gem of a museum after seeing it in a brochure. It is very well laid out and had some wonderful information as well as fun to see bits of computer history. Any true computer geek should visit this museum!

This museum presents so much information in a nicely planned out, logical sequence. It traces the beginnings of logic and computers from ancient times to the present. It houses a wealth of artifacts which are nicely displayed. Robotics are also part of the displays. There is no fee, but they welcome donations. This really is a great place to visit!

The museum is small but very well laid out and the equivalent of decent sized exhibit inside of a larger museum. It is definitely worth the stop if you are in the Bozeman Montana area and have interest in computing or perhaps just pointing out to the kids how computing has rapidly changed recently with comparisons to the remainder of...

Compact, well laid-out museum with one-of-a-kind computers and other items. You don't have to be a techy to understand what this museum offers. It's great for almost all ages.

This is one of the best exhibits I have ever seen. I have been to many, such as the Smithsonian, but this is a stellar assemblage of some of the most important milestones in computer and gaming history. We had a limited time, but I could spend hours in each room and not want to leave. It is hard to... More
