Located on Museum Wharf on Congress St., this museum uses more than 170 interactive exhibits to tell the story of the information revolution and its impact. The Walk-Thru Computer 2000 is a two-story-tall model of a personal computer. Other exhibits let visitors test drive the information highway and walk through "time tunnels" to observe milestones in computer and information technology. The Virtual Fishtank allows visitors to design computer-generated fish by selecting physical features and behavior patterns and then releasing their creation into a "tank" made up of 12 large projection screens.

Museum open daily 10am-6pm in mid-June through Labor Day. Winter hours vary.
