Opening Ceremony of the Computer Museum

Opening Ceremony of the Computer Museum

Thursday 10th of May, the Computer Museum at our department officially opened. A 140+ persons participated in the opening ceremony, and many a computer story were shared among the visitors.

The computer museum is unique in Norway, and has on display many of the first computers used at NTH and in Norway. GIER is one of the many historically important computers displayed. You also can play computer games on Commodore 64 and other old computers. Space Invaders anyone? :-) 

Computer Historian Ola Nordal, and Chief Engineer Anders Christensen have devoted a lot of time and energy in collecting, organizing and documenting the computer history. The students Espen Olsen and Terje Hoås has helped in finalizing the museum.

Next time you visit NTNU - take the time to visit the Computer Museum!
