General tours

Over the course of one hour, our guides will show you the most important and interesting exhibits and areas of the museum, taking you on a journey that covers 5,000 years. You will start with the first alphabets, and see the first writing and counting machines, bulky punch-card systems and early computers. Discover personal computers from the 1980s and our impressive collection of pocket calculators and mobile phones, and plunge into the world of robots.

We encourage you to plan extra time, so that you have the opportunity for in-depth exploration on your own after the tour.
