I am 50 years old, and not very interested in technology, but it was just fascinating to me to see the evolution of computers over just my own lifetime. Even some computers from way before that. This museum is not expensive, and not too big, and definitely worth a stop on your family vacation through Bozeman.

We visited with our 10 & 12 year olds. For a free museum ( they ask for a donation but are not pushy) this place was worth the time. With our kids we spent about 45 minutes there but if you're really into computers you could spend a lot longer reading all the information. It's clean and well laid out.... More

Stopped by after visiting the Museum of the Rockies in the morning and was pleasantly surprised by how many interesting exhibits they had here. Has stuff for everyone, me and my girlfriend learned quite a bit. Honestly I probably found this museum more interesting that the museum of the Rockies. Staff was extremely friendly as well.

World class review of the computer age. If you are older you will really like all the "old stuff." Do not miss this one.

I loved seeing the history of computers, from ancient writings on clay tablets, through the Gutenberg Press to the early computers of 50 years ago up to the more current ideas in computer science. It was fascinating for even technology challenged folks like myself.

I did not expect to enjoy this museum so much. In Bozeman, Montana, it's a small museum with so much history to take you back to the start of computers and robotics. Robby the Robot lives here along with detailed information about the origins of computers and coding, robotic automation, the original wristwatch worn during Man's First Moonwalk, the first... More

This is a great collection of the history of information. A lot of neat artifacts and written history packed into a small space. This stop was enjoyed by both adults and children.

Most of us take our technology for granted, but this museum gave me a whole new appreciation of where humans have come from, where we are and where we're going when it comes to technology. Not only a collection of old computers, this museum runs the gamut from Mesopotamian stone tablets (the original IPad) to the future of artificial intelligence.... More
