History of Computing in Mountain View
I finally had the opportunity to visit the Computer History Museum in Mountain View today. If you are into computers, you will love this museum. The main exhibit, "Revolution: The First 2000 Years of Computing" covers all types of computing devices from the abacus through the IPhone. Here you will get to see early mechanical computing devices, analog computers, games, primitive PCs, and many other devices from the history of computing. There are also exhibits and multimedia presentations on many of the unique individuals that contributed to the development of computers.
The Computer History Museum is located about 45 minutes south of San Francisco and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 to 5:00.
