Why an IT Museum?

That’s why we decided to create the Hellenic IT Museum. Our goal is to gather and share knowledge about the history of IT.

There are 3 Collections:
The Hellenic IT Museum has a rare collection of milestone computers and peripherals that have contributed to the development of information technology.
Starting in the mid-1970s, the collection of the Hellenic IT Museum seeks to portray the small and big steps of information technology that have led to the rapid technological developments that we are currently experiencing.
The first personal computers, the first micro computers, the first portable computers, as well vacuum tubes, punched cards, first RAM memory and other hardware items are waiting to be discovered or reunited!
Today we are talking about the Internet of Things and cloud services, but in the past we needed some cassettes to install a simple application! Once the operating system of a single home computer only operated with commands. Once in a computer game he had to “load” the next track with a different floppy disk!
These first steps in software development are the most important and innovative for their era, in our view. The software collection of the Hellenic IT Museum includes, among other things, software from the first personal and microcomputers, 5.25 ” and 3.5 ” and many more retro exhibits.
