The Computer Museum You'll have more fun than humanly possible at The Computer Museum. It's the only place in the world where you can explore a 50-times life-size working PC, dance on the 20-foot long keyboard, test drive the Information Highway, surf the Internet, monitor air traffic nationwide, spend a million dollars, pilot a DC-10, breed your own electronic fish, and travel through computer history. We have more than 150 interactive exhibits in five large, colorful galleries.
