Small, very interesting museum that highlights the development of computers, both large and small. Should be of interest to anyone with a smart phone or a laptop, to see how these ubiquitous objects came to be in our lives. Does a good job of highlighting...More

Really enjoyed this smallish museum. The exhibition is nicely divided into logical sections - home computing, cryptography etc. The section on the enigma machine is the best description I've seen and that includes Bletchley Park.

Had an afternoon to kill, so went 'touristing' in Bozeman. As I had worked on some early computer systems (1960s), thought we'd give this place a quick shot, but wasn't expecting much....after all, this IS Montana, not Silicon Valley or something similar. What an absolutely...More

The quality of the museum was so beyond what I expected from a small town college. Exhibits well-presented and extend well beyond computers alone. More like an overview of human communication, beginning w/written language and all the way through to how computers have revolutionized life...More

This is a free museum in Bozeman. It is well worth the time exploring all the rooms of exhibits. There is a replica Enigma machine (there had been an original one) and a video which was very interesting.

Any geek or space buff would be foolish to miss this gem of a museum. Great artifacts and also great stories told well. Compact yet powerful (and a hoot to see some of the very old desktop computers and older specimens). Wish we didn't have...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
