More than just computers, includes things from the printing press to robots. A little disjointed, but some fascinating displays. Amazing array of old home computers, including an original Apple1 signed by Woz himself. Staff was friendly and helpful. Interesting gift shop. Must do for geeks and nerds.

This small museum, is well laid out and full of interesting and historically significant pieces in the development of computers and robotics. The lady at the museum was extremely helpful and friendly. She set out the history of data recording fron ancient Egyptian stone tablets to modern day data processing and recording to show that computing is not a modern... More

This is not just a museum filled with old computers. The technology goes to BC forward and covers the evolution of the telephone with an exhibit of an old switchboard. Thought provoking statements concerning artificial intelligence and more. I would be hesitant to take a child younger than 10. Loved the fact "The Woz" donated an Apple 1 &2 plus... More

Have visited family in Bozeman many times and coming from "flatland" always favored outdoor activities. This time, thank to Trip Adviser, made our way to the Computer Museum. What a treat! It is informative, thought provoking, and nostalgic. As they rotate the display, we plan to return again in the future.

They have so many old computers, that they have to rotate some of the displays. The place is dripping with data about the advent of computer technology. Totally worth the visit!

This museum covered so much of the human experience with technology from the Guttenberg Press to Space Exploration. In 92 years we went from being able to create a two minute recording to a microchip that can hold over 2,000 songs. There were many areas that have contributed to the growth of technology in the American culture. It was interesting... More

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.
