The Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California,
a public benefit organization with a 25-year history as part
of the former Boston Computer Museum, preserves and presents
for posterity the artifacts and stories of the information age.

The Museum is dedicated to exploring the social impact of
computing and is home to the world's largest collection of
computing-related items -- from hardware (mainframes, PCs,
handhelds, integrated circuits), to software, to computer
graphics systems, to the Internet and networking. The collection
also includes photos, films, videos, documents, publications,
and advertising and marketing materials.

Currently in its first phase, the Museum brings computing history
to life through its popular speaker series, seminars, oral histories
and workshops. The Museum also offers self-guided and docent-led tours
of Visible Storage, where nearly 600 objects from the collection
are on display. A new exhibit, “Mastering The Game:
A History of Computer Chess,” opened in September 2005.
Please check the Web site for open hours.

Future phases will feature full museum exhibits and
educational programs, including a timeline of computing history,
theme galleries, a research center, and much more.
