I had relatively low expectations, but this is a carefully curated collection of computer stuff, including thought provoking AI exhibits. Selection of geek books, including books on women's contribution and involvement in IT. No fee to enter but you really should support this with a...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

Having spent over 35 years with the government in data processing, this free museum was a great find. The displays start off with man's first efforts at written communication and goes forth from there. Gutenberg, Babbage, Hollerith, Jobs, Wozniak, Hopper; stories and displays about them...More

Yes, I am a 60 year old geek that loves history, but I think this place would amaze most people. Science, mystery, history,biology, WWII, ENIAC, it's beautifully done. Volunteers are super.

For anyone who might be interested in mankind's history of communications, encryption, space travel and computers this is a "must-see" attraction in Bozeman. Best of all the admission is free. The woman who greeted us upon our arrival is a native of Poland. She gave...More

Actually this is not just for computer geeks. A comprehensive look at the advances and hardware that has resulted in the current miniaturized devices with incredible power. An eye opening exhibit of how far we have come in computation able advances in a short time.

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
