Computermuseum

The Computermuseum at the Department of Computer Science shows an extensive collection of historical, fully functional computers and calculating machines

What is special about the Computer Museum at the Department of Computer Science?

The calculating machines and computers are fully functional and carry out arithmetic functions and commands thanks to the knowledge of the system administrators, who use programming languages that are no longer in use and also have an extensive stock of spare parts.

The museum tells the fascinating 350-year development of computers, starting with the calculating machine of Wilhelm Schickardt and ending with the microprocessors that started a revolution in the mid-1970s and the beginning of today's digitalisation.

Almost all exhibits of the collection  can be shown in operation: mechanical and electronic desk calculators, probably the oldest magnetic drum computer LGP 30 still in use in Germany, an IBM 1130 with punch cards, early minicomputers, old input and output devices and a large number of data carriers forgotten today.

The museum is supported by:
