If you are a 'TECH' person, you must go here. Worth to visit. I will suggest to take a guided tour. It is available free of cost. Arranged twice in a day. Guides are very much informative. Sometimes we can not see, what they show us. Don't go on SIZE or space available. Much more to read, much more to learn, much more to know on every wall, every piece, every corner of museum. Please go early, so that you can take advantage of your money. But you will always have that hunger to visit again and again. Can not complete in one visit. We were there till security person came to us to say please leave. If your kids are studying, it would be great for them as well.
Superb! A must visit place for anyone even slightly interested in computers. It is fascinating to see how the technology has evolved over the years. The cloud bistro cafe has some good choice to fuel up. The volunteer staff over there is amazing. We just had couple of hours to visit, but this museum needs at least half a day.
