For over 20 years, Brantford Local Computer Guru SYD BOLTON has dreamed of opening a museum to
showcase the history of personal computers. Many children have no idea about life before a
‘mouse’, when ‘green screens’ ruled the day, and a time well before the Internet was available
to everyone. Relive your earlier computer days or find out how we roughed it in the 70’s and
Over 45 interactive computer displays from over 1,000 computers in total. We have over 25,000 artifacts with approximately 5,000 in our building at any given time.
Apple • Atari • Amiga • Commodore • Macintosh • Radio Shack • IMSAI • IBM • Next • Mattel • Timex • Xerox • Coleco • Dell
The Personal Computer Museum also runs a free computer giveaway program in our community. Your donations help!
--We are open this evening from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM for donations and tours--
The Personal Computer Museum is open on select dates. Come and
visit Brantford’s first computer museum, unique in all of South Western Ontario, Canada. We not
only have computers but a large software library (with many video games), magazine and book collections and other
interesting artifacts. Even the restoration of our building has a story, so come and see
us soon! Fun for the whole family, first floor is wheelchair accessible. Street parking is free.
The museum is next open on Saturday, October 18, 2014
We now have the largest known collection of computers in Canada, the largest known collection of video games in Canada,
and the largest known collection of CED video discs (perhaps in the world!)
We are always looking to expand our collection. Please check out
our most wanted page for the machines we are after. We are the perfect place to recycle old computers, so bring them to us during our open houses. Recyling computers is important to us. You can also donate money and computers to the Wil Morin Memorial Computer Giveaway for Kids.
We are looking for a bigger location! If you can help us out, let us know! We are transitioning to become the Personal Computer & Video Game History Museum. Winner of several Shining Stars Tourism Awards.
