Computer History Museum (Part 2) - Mountain View, CA

On 1 April, 2023, my dad and I went to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. The address of the museum is at 1401 N Shoreline Blvd, Mountain View, CA 94043. I had a great time geeking out on old technology. While most of the things I saw were way before my time (such as punch card programing), I had a great time seeing all of the Commodore computers, Apple computers, and the historic game consoles. I'm a total computer geek. 😂 It has been a decade since I went to this museum and I have been wanting to go again. I took cellphone photos at the museum, and the photos are split into 4 parts. I took way too many photos on this trip. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos.

Museum Tip: If you are a Bank of America customer and cardholder, you can visit many museums for free on the first full weekend of each month. You can find more information about the program here.
