For geeks and even people interested in the evolution of information technology, this is a great place to visit. It's a little hard to find, being in a business park surrounded by insurance offices, but keep looking!

The cost is free with an optional donation. There is a heavy focus on robotics and especially in the movies. I would have liked to see more computer history. Then again I am a computer geek.

Well worth a visit and many of the industries heavyweights have paid the museum a visit.

We went because our oldest son is a computer geek. It was quite a collection of things and enjoyed by all. Really nice for free :)

Other reviewers are right on the mark, this is well worth your time. You can spend 30 minutes or 2 hours, its up to you. The curator is extremely helpful and knowledgable and will personally take time to answer any questions you may have. If you are going to Museum of the Rockies it's 2 minutes away and a stop definitely worth a look.

My husband and I went to this really informative museum while in Bozemen. It is a hidden Gem that if you love computers, you must visit! It is run by a non-profit organization that really enjoys sharing the timeline of computers and robotics. Very nice exhibits and artifacts, which many came from NJ, where we are from! Would highly recommend a visit here. We were there for about an hour. There is no cost, however, donations are accepted; which we were pleased to contribute!
