In line with the measures taken by the italian government to prevent the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition Hello World! will be closed from Thursday 5 November until Thursday 3 December. We hope to reopen soon.
The Museum of Computing Machinery exhibits the most significant pieces of a very rich collection of machines linked to the history of Computer Science, unique in Italy and internationally important for its completeness and significance of the pieces.
Since October 10, 2019 a large part of the Museum’s collection is on display at the “Le Benedettine” (Piazza San Paolo a Ripa d’Arno, 16) as part of the exhibition “Hello World! Computer technology until the smartphone”. Admission to the exhibition is free. For the entire duration of the exhibition, the activities of the Museum will be held there.
The Museum of Computing Machinery is therefore temporarily closed, also because it is affected by renovation works.
