We envision a vibrant space where education and community collide, fostering a love for technology through:

  • Open Access: We provide everyone with the opportunity to explore historical resources, delve into the world of vintage computing, and discover the secrets behind iconic inventions.
  • Knowledge Sharing: Our student-led initiatives, presentations, and participation in conferences create platforms for exchanging insights and igniting conversations about the impact of technology on society.
  • Innovation Inspiration: We believe that by understanding the past, we can unlock the potential for future breakthroughs. Our museum serves as a springboard for new ideas, encouraging creativity and problem-solving skills.

From Humble Beginnings to a Thriving Hub:

Our journey began in 2018, with a single display case brimming with curiosity. Since then, the MoT has blossomed into a treasure trove of technological marvels. Today, we proudly showcase:

  • 12 captivating display cases filled with historical artifacts, from early computers and gaming consoles to vintage software and magazines.
  • 10+ fully functional vintage computers and gaming consoles inviting visitors to step back in time and experience the dawn of the digital age firsthand.
  • A curated collection of vintage computer magazines and books, offering a glimpse into the fascinating world of computing history.

Ever Evolving, Always Engaging:

We believe in keeping the spark of discovery alive. That's why our exhibits are constantly evolving, featuring a rotating selection of artifacts to ensure there's always something new to explore.

The Future Beckons:

Our dreams don't stop at the walls of the museum. We're planning to expand our space, allowing us to showcase even more technological wonders. We offer "Retro Tech" sessions, where participants can delve deeper into the world of vintage computing through hands-on workshops. Dates and locations are posted on our Facebook page.

Join us on this incredible journey through time! The Museum of Technology awaits, ready to open your mind to the wonders of the digital past and inspire you to shape the future of technology.
