Everyone uses computers, but few know the story of how they came to be. Revolution: The First 2000 Years of Computing is an engaging 25,000-square-foot exhibition, featuring 19 galleries, 1,100 objects, and an array of original multimedia experiences that chronicle the history of computing on a global scale, from the abacus to the smartphone.
Here I am highlighting the exhibition “Revolution,” which considers the first 2,000 years of the computer, but once you’re in the door, there’s nothing to stop you from nosing through “Where To? A History of Autonomous Vehicles” which goes back farther than Tesla, surprisingly. Can’t make it to the museum in the flesh? Check out a wide range of complimentary online exhibitions anytime.
