Although there were a large number of exhibits not working, there were still plenty left to choose from. There are dozens of computers running all kinds of programs, including artificial intelligence imitators, a program that randomly draws human figures, programs that produce fractals, and many others. One outstanding exhibit is a walk-through computer that actually runs a program and shows descriptions of how the computer is working. Another excellent exhibit shows the practical applications of robots and computers.

The Computer Museum is great for computer devotees, and for those who know nothing about computers. The exhibits are all clear and easy-to-use.
