Most exhibits span from the 1970s to the 1990s. The visitor encounters computer systems from many companies, such as Apple, Sinclair, Commodore, Amstrad, Wang, Texas Instruments, Zenith, Casio, Toshiba and many more.

What I can't see

It is the only IT museum in southeast Europe. It is constantly evolving, the donors have exceeded 270 and the founder of the museum, Giorgos Tsekouras, together with his team, has managed to bring together people of various ages. The young visitors are impressed by the spectrum of technological progress and the older ones are nostalgic for their childhood and teenage years. The museum has mainly an educational role; it highlights technological progress, the transition to the digital world and to a future that we can hardly predict. In addition to school tours, the museum provides private tours, organizes exhibitions and other events of various topics.
