We had a great time visiting the American Computer Museum. So much change in this industry in so few years. Who knew personal computers advanced so quickly due to space exploration? We actually remembered a lot of the old machines.

A small museum packed with a variety of artifacts. While you can read about most of this old hardware elsewhere there are not many places you can see it up close. Definitely worth stopping by.

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
