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

Had time to kill before getting to the airport. Someone in my party thought this might be a worthwhile stop. From the outside it doesn't look like anything special. There is no admission fee just optional contributions. This place blew me away with their exhibits, presentations, and overall information regarding computers and technology. I found it educational and entertaining. This... More

Just recently read 3 books related to computer technology (The Innovators, the Rise of the Robots, The New Machine Age) so visiting this Museum was perfectly timed. This is a tiny museum with fabulous, no nonsense exhibits. Comprehensive, concise and a great primer for those of us who are interested but not techy, and a good lesson for anyone who... More

My son's wanted to see this computer museum. Driving up to the small office park and seeing the museum I thought - 'This will take 5 minutes'. Was I wrong? What a great little gem of a museum. The whole family went and my wife and daughter are not big into computers and even they loved it. It is a... More

As a geek from way back I had no idea what to expect but knew I wanted to check this out - and am I ever glad I did. What a great place! If you're interested in technology you'll find this place incredibly enjoyable and informative. Some really neat displays well beyond what I would have expected from such an... More

A fantastic little museum that started as the founder's personal collection. The collection contains bits of computer history that you would never expect to find in Montana.

It doesn't look like a museum from the outside. It is free, which is very nice! And there are a lot of interesting things, from comparing the size of a T-rex's head to its brain, to seeing the first computers, to the development of cell phones, artificial intelligence, why we use @ in emails, why text messages are 160 characters....
