Ancient books and the first computer tapes, DVDs and the portable typewriter Rheinmetall, clay tablets and birchbark manuscripts, memory sticks and papyrus rolls — the museum collection has a wide range of data storage devices embracing the cultural history of the mankind.

The exhibits include an honourable range of computers: IBM PC XT — the top of engineering thought of the 1980s, universal Notebook TOSHIBA T3200, popular Sinclair ZX Spectrum, UKNTs MS Electronics 0511 PC, etc. Fans of gadgets will see the first Apple products, Blackberry communicators, the first video games and state-of-the-art iPads.

The museum visitors can listen to the audioguide or learn about the book evolution by means of the museum iPad. Interesting and amusing facts and photos are accompanied with a sci-fi short-length film released in France in 1947 and back then foretold the appearance of e-book readers in the future.

The exposition is interactive: you can try modern e-book readers and download the books you are interested in.
