Interesting exhibitions and we also took the 45 min tour (which went slightly overtime and was a little repetitive towards the end but still worth it). Some of the expo is interactive which I really enjoyed and found it to be suitable for both kids...More

If you're of the age that grew up during the advent of computers, this is an attraction you might enjoy. They have many, many exhibits, lots to see and read, and is very educational for young and old alike.

Our family of 4 with teenagers spent several hours here. It was a comprehensive walk thru the computer history. Lots to look at and several interactive elements.

Visited with my 10 year old son, he really liked it as did I. Well organised and explained, lots of historic computers and company names from long ago. Funny to see Nintendo Gameboy as exhibit.

If you are interested in computers, do not miss this museum. The collection is very well documented and curated and you will see some highlights from computer history. My only gripe is that it is a little hard to navigate. Definitely a must of you...More

I wish it was a bit more geek oriented. It is more like a showroom with limited relation to me personally even though I have been with comps since 80'ies.
