Computer History Museum



#3

I was in Silicon Valley the other day (all the way from Australia) and took time out to visit the Computer History Museum.

WOW!

Fantastic place, and they have a collection of calculators too, most of which are HP.

Here are some pics of the collection:

Also plenty of history on other calculator devices like the abacus and slide rules etc.

Nice pictures, but in fact I think, these calculators are shown in a bit a disorders way....
In my modest museum I show the calcualtors in order to their serie as I think, this gives the better overview. I also do not mix calculators and manuals.
