Our motto: ctrl-alt-preserve

Since 1994, it has been the dream of the ACMS to open a dedicated computer museum to the public – something which every other developed country already has.

In 2018, the ACMS has seen an influx of new members and revitalised energy – our new staff will not tire, nor will they surcease in their efforts until Australia has a dedicated computer museum.

In the early days of computing, Australia was a world leader – the third country in the world to design and build a functional computer. Can’t we now, in our trillion-dollar economy, support a computing heritage museum to preserve the artifacts and history of this marvellous technology which we helped pioneer?

Our members have been working tirelessly for many decades to save and preserve the invaluable historic computers and associated documentation, software, peripherals, photos, manuals, magnetic media already in our collection.

We are seeking Government support, and private and corporate donations, to open our museum to the public in a suitable building. Our passionate volunteers of long experience in computing will be in attendance to assist visitors.

Retro computing enthusiasts will be welcome to participate in the operation of the museum and encouraged to engage in the quest for a full complement of the history of computing in Australia.

From the early days of valve machines, to the mini-computers of the 70’s, to the bedroom revolution of home PC’s – the history of computers is a rich, fascinating and compelling tale.

Help us tell this story by joining or making an ongoing contribution.
Give Australia something to be genuinely proud about again.
