  • Insanely awesome museum with some incredible computers and things I never would have expected from a museum this size. You could easily spend a couple of hours here. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable, and the computers and artifacts here will blow your mind. If Steve Wozniak has been here twice, you know it's good.
  • Absolutely wonderful museum the man that ran the place was very kind and nice making sure to not over explain something during the museum introduction. The movies they had were fun and educational and i even got a floppy disk at the gift shop so i could remember that place. I traveled from indiana to see that place and it was well worth the trip
