Computer Museum

Our museum has exhibits tracing the development of computer technology through the ages. We are dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computing history. The museum is located in the dean's suite on the fourth floor of the Carl DeSantis building. As a courtesy, please contact Ashley Klein via email or phone (954-262-2035) before your planned visit.

We are continually growing our collection of vintage computers. If you have items you think would fit in the museum's collections, please contact us!
