Tracing the Transition of Computer and Network Technologies

Although there are no museums dedicated to computers in Japan, many organizations and institutions collect and exhibit valuable materials related to computer science, albeit on a small scale.

The Cyberscience Center Exhibition Room, located at Tohoku University, is certified as a distributed computer museum by the Information Processing Society of Japan. The exhibition room showcases the transition of computer and network technologies, and the history of the Center since its establishment as the Tohoku University Large-Scale Computer Center in 1969.
