If you’ve always wanted to walk through the history of computers, and don’t have the time or the money to travel to the great northwestern United States to visit the Living Computer Museum in Seattle, Washington, the website we’re about to share is made for you!
Made by Tosolini Productions, The Living Computer Museum Virtual Tour offers a Google Streets-like virtual tour of the Living Computer Museum in Seattle. You can virtually stroll through any part of the museum, which contains exhibits ranging from the early days of computing, all the way up through recent years. (And there’s plenty of Apple-related exhibits.)
The Living Computer Museum, located in Seattle, Washington, is dedicated to preserving and displaying working examples of those computers that tell the story of our journey away from computing as a difficult and expensive undertaking toward the universal access to information technology we enjoy today.
Although we have many stories associated with the history of our systems, we believe that the best way for people to fully understand computing systems is by experiencing them. Hardware alone cannot illustrate what it was like to use these machines. Software, information, and human interaction complete the experience.
We celebrate the achievements of early computer engineers by preserving and maintaining running machines and original software, and making them available to everyone.
The virtual tour is open any time, but if you’re up for an actual visit to the museum, you’ll find it located at: 2245 First Avenue South, in Seattle, WA. Admission is: $6.00, Children (ages 0-5) Free, Youth (ages 6-17) $2.00, Student (with I.D.) $4.00, Seniors (62+) $4.00, Active military (with I.D.) $4.00, and the 1st Thursday of each month (5-8 PM) it is Free.
