It is surprising to discover the American Computer Museum, or the American Computer & Robotics Museum, located in Bozeman, Montana. But here it is, at 2023 Stadium Drive, in a wonderfully curated museum that details the history of computing, communications, artificial intelligence and robotics. It...More

This is a beautifully curated museum that artfully conveys the breadth of the technological and cultural transformation that brought us into the era of the computer. It’s concise rather than sprawling, but the exhibits are well-designed and the flow of the museum illustrates the magnitude...More

This is in an office complex, and not the easiest to find, but worth the effort. It's free, but they accept donations. While it's very small, it is very well done and packed with great info. Great section on women and minorities in computing. If...More

Outstanding displays, even for a public museum, from an original Apple 1 to newest in Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. Worth a trip, even across the USA to visit. Free to all, but I plan to send a donation.

The museum has a nice selection of computers from the early abacus, Eniac, slide rules, punch cards, early Apple and space program. Variety was excellent.

This is a neat place for those who are interested in technology. They have various items of older technology accompanied with some information on topics including: computers, spacecraft, encryption, and AI, physics, science fiction. Don't expect too much as it's a really small museum so...More

Thank you for your question. No, Paul Ceruzzi was not involved in the establishment of this museum. He is a good friend - but the museum was founded by my wife Barbara and myself. Best, George Keremedjiev
