The history of the future – a journey through the HNF

If you’d like to get to know the history of information technology better, or prepare for – or follow up on – a visit to the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum, then you need the new museum guide: “The history of the future – a journey through the HNF”, which has been available in a completely revised new edition since the end of 2023.

The guide’s 268 pages and around 350 illustrations cover all the exhibit areas at the museum as well as describing topics that the exhibition only covers marginally or that cannot be practically exhibited. Here you will find articles on women working in offices, the invention of the computer mouse or the presentation of the iPhone, for instance. The museum guide is thus also a handbook on the history of information technology.

The museum guide is available for €9.50 in German (ISBN 978-3-9805757-9-9) and English (ISBN 978-3-9825520-0-2), and can be purchased in the HNF museum shop or at bookstores.
