The PC Museum is evolving

Brantford's Personal Computer Museum now has more space to show the evolution of technology.

The Personal Computer Museum celebrated opening an exhibition at THEMUSEUM in Kitchener on Oct. 4 called Interplay that runs until March 2018.

Syd Bolton, the founder and curator of the museum, said expanding was something he has wanted to do for a long time to give people more room to stand back and take it all in.

“People have been fascinated, but I think in Brantford sometimes it's overwhelming for people. I don't see it so much because I live it. I'm used to it, but for the first time, it can be very overwhelming. For Kitchener, it's less so to allow them to take in what they are seeing a bit better,” he said.

The exhibit features an '90s living room with a couch with a working PlayStation built into it, a tube television and more.

“It certainly doesn't feel like today's living rooms. So much has changed with flat screens and Xboxes. It's nostalgic for me because I grew up with it,” he said.

There is also a '80s computer store and a working art and music station where people can draw on one of the first tablets Apple created, listen to music on a computer from the 80s, and much more.

THEMUSEUM is open from Wednesdays to Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays are $5. General admission for adults is $12, children are $9 and seniors are $11.

Bolton said they hope to host a weekend of reduced admission for Brantford residents who show identification.

The Personal Computer Museum will also host a Robot Day on Oct. 21 at the Brantford location and on Nov. 18 they will host the first Harry Potter Day with Harry Potter video games and two live magicians.
