Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, will open its first full-blown permanent exhibit on 13th of January. The 25,000-square-foot, “Revolution: The First 2000 Years of Computing” exhibit will feature a rare assortment of historical computers and other related apparatus. The upcoming exhibition of the seven-year-old Computer History Museum is expected to be the biggest and most remarkable so far. A total of nineteen separate galleries will display more than one thousand objects.
The exhibition will display every invention in the computing world, ranging from the abacus to the internet. Early technology like Punch-card tabulating machine designed by Herman Hollerith for the 1980 census and modern technology like that of Apple II personal computers include the objects to be displayed. Other highlights of the exhibition will include IBM’s huge hard drives from 1950s, a big Honeywell console from the 1960s and a microcomputer from 1969.
Visitors will also have an opportunity to see the 19th century’s Charles Babbage’s un-built, hand-cranked computing machine Difference Engine No. 2. “Revolution: The First 2000 Years of Computing” will also be available online.
