The Australian Computer Museum Society was established in 1994 to preserve and exhibit the artefacts of computing history in Australia. That means not only the computers, but also the documentation, software, and peripherals – back to the very beginning!
One of our significant ongoing initiatives is to record the histories of people and organisations that pioneered, used and developed computing equipment and associated technologies in Australia.
Our mission is to educate Australians about the history of information technology, which today permeates every aspect of our daily lives. We do this in a number of ways. We develop online reference materials and podcasts. We produce articles for magazines and websites. We write booklets and monographs. And we are working towards the public exhibition of representative artefacts.
There is much more to do. We plan to initiate educational classes for schools and interested members of the public. We are reaching out to like-minded individuals and organisations in Australia and internationally. We are building a catalogue and a virtual museum.
Recently ACMS has been rejuvenated with the influx of many passionate and talented individuals dedicated to the success of the organisation and its aims. We invite you to join us.
