The entire month of August, we’ll be open 7 days a week! Monday till Saturday between 11:00 and 18:00 and Sunday from 12:00 till 17:00 ! For a mere €10,24 per person (€5,12 for children up to 14 or get a family ticket for €27) you can play with over 200 systems from 1975 onward. And we have airconditioning!

Also, we decided to become more active on TikTok . We’d love you to follow us there for some short videos about computers or general museum stuff!

This week the open beta test of the defunct Microsoft Messenger Service (1999 ≠ 2013) starts for visitors of the museum. The service runs locally (LAN) between several PCs in the museum and is fully working. Book your ticket now to re-experience the early 2000s ways of communicating!

We are introducing 2 new services today. We redefined ‘Mobile Museum’ which is now more clear what we can do. In short, this is meant for events or (trade) fairs where we bring a selection of the museum to your location for use as entertainment while also bringing information and nostalgia to the event. It’s really like a museum, except we are coming to you!

Second service is ‘Museum Talk’ where our founder is giving an inspirational presentation about either how he build the museum from a hobby to a world renown, social and independent museum or why computers (and data made with a computer) should be considered heritage and how we can store it for the long term.

Both can be found in the Services menu.

Due the current lockdown the Netherlands are in, we have postponed all our events.

The CD-i event will take place in May 2022 (instead of Dec 2021) and the VCF Festival is postponed to September 2022 (instead of March 2022).

The museum is currently closed for visitors until at least the 15th of January. Our Repair service is active from Monday till Friday between 10:00 and 17:00.
