I thoroughly enjoyed it. Spend well over 3 hrs. One will be taken back in time. You will see sectors to Napier Bones, Cray to Macintoshes to Mario and Nintendos. We can even have a hands-on on the Napier Bones and punched cards. Very well...More

People are very nice and helpful and can tell you so many stories.

Interesting exhibitions and we also took the 45 min tour (which went slightly overtime and was a little repetitive towards the end but still worth it). Some of the expo is interactive which I really enjoyed and found it to be suitable for both kids...More
