A highlight of the exhibition will give visitors the opportunity to play early video games courtesy of the Personal Computer Museum, located in Brantford, Ontario.


Personal Computer Museum

For over 20 years, Brantford local computer guru SYD BOLTON has dreamed of opening a museum to showcase the history of personal computers. Many children have no idea about life before a ‘mouse’, when ‘green screens’ ruled the day, and a time well before the Internet was available to everyone. Relive your earlier computer days or find out how we roughed it in the 70’s and 80’s.

There are over 45 interactive computer displays, over 1,000 computers in total at the Personal Computer Museum. You may remember some of these:

Apple • Atari • Amiga • Commodore • Macintosh • Radio Shack • IMSAI • IBM • Next • Mattel • Timex • Xerox • Coleco • Dell

And many more! Many working models you can play with!
