My Dad (a retired electrical engineer) and I visited the Computer History Museum yesterday.
We were amazed and entranced by the depth and range of this institution.
The exhibits and the artifacts are astounding, although I might have been disappointed if some of these things had not been present. We saw the Babbage Difference Engine No. 2, the RAMAC (first hard drive, developed in San Jose), an Enigma (German code machine) and a component of the Colossus (seminal WW2 code-breaking computer).
We were here for about 3 hours, and could have stayed for another hour (we got tired).
My only complaint is that I think the cues on flow through the museum could be a bit better; I definitely should have referred to the map more.
We'll go back!
