Now That’s What I Call a History Lesson

Software exhibit from MTV museum“Museums are boring!” If you hold such an opinion, it’s quite likely you haven’t been in those really interesting ones yet. Today (or yesterday, depending on PoV) I happened to be in such a place, and I can assert its awesomeness with unparalleled confidence.

It’s the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. If you ever find yourself in northern California, I definitely recommend paying a visit there.
Inside, you can find all sorts of extremely cool exhibits from the somewhat short but wildly interesting history of computer science. Anything from early vacuum tubes, through Commodores and up to iPhones, with all the surprising stuff in between.

I couldn’t spend a whole day there, sadly, but I took a few pictures. Apologies for the low quality of some; although I took them with a device that won’t land in this museum for quite a while, it’s still just a phone.
