About museum

8 years ago, I suddenly realized that the history of computers, even in the minds of students of specialized universities, seems to be absent. There are also few public museums in this field, and the exhibitions are very fragmented. I started collecting computer technology. Today, I have the largest public display of computer technology, starting from 1912.

The museum is interactive – you can take a picture at the workplace of an engineer of the 30s, count on a mechanical tablet…The price is included in the tour.

There are about 24,000 artifacts in the collection. These are mechanical and electronic computing devices, media, literature, and accessories that reveal the style of the era – furniture, pennants, and so on.
