It was easy to find and has a fair amount of parking. The building is a large 2 story structure but all the exhibits are on the first floor. We got a discount buying tickets online so I would suggest going online to see if you can get do the same thing. You check in at the front counter where they give you a collar tab to wear and a map. They offer tours at certain times of the day. We took the one at noon. It was fascinating. The displays are very well done and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Once we finished the tour we wandered the rest of the museum. There is a group of interactive displays that teach programming and other rooms that we didn’t even get to. I plan to visit here again. Great museum.

The place is just amazing, and going through the artifacts of the Micro computer history was like reliving my childhood: they even have an Apple I signed by Steve Wozniak himself! Other pieces of interest: a piece of the Eniac, the first Google Server and an Apple II still functioning!

Really enjoyed the museum Especially if you have been in the IT industry. Could have spent a lot longer here. The app was very good for information about the exhibits. Coffee shop was good. Would allow at least 3-4 hours if you interested in computing
