Celebrate the Past, Present and Future of Computing
The Compuseum is a charitable organization comprised of industry experts, techno-connoisseurs and everyday users from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences who celebrate the role of computers in our daily lives. Together we are build exciting exhibits while we gather momentum to build an interactive museum of hardware and software in the Philadelphia region; home of the ENIAC, the worlds first all electronic programmable computer.
We invite you to see, feel and interact with the technology and the people that made our digital age come alive. Experience the action and activity which built the trillion dollar computing industry over a few short decades.
The Compuseum and our team assemble, curate and showcase the newest information technology releases surrounded by the legacy hardware and software that made it all possible.
