The Museum, located in Building V's Reading Room at the Facultad de Informática, accommodates a collection of over 80 landmark items in the history of computing and communications, plus another 300 objects that are to be exhibited in future extensions of the museum.

A tour of the museum clearly, precisely and amenably illustrates the whirlwind progress of a technology that is no more than fifty years old but already plays a key role in many walks of life. The Museum's didactic and explanatory panels outline the evolution of the world of computing as of the milestones that have marked its development: technology, programming languages, operating systems or Internet history. They are furbished with items like ferrite core memories, valves, microprocessors, punch cards, early PCs, workstations, magnetic tapes, hard drives, etc.

The Museum is open every Friday from 12.30 am to 1.30 pm and from 3.30 pm to 4.30 pm during term time for visits. Student groups from the Facultad de Informática or any other institution that would like to arrange a guided tour should contact the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.
