Atlanta, Ga. – May 16, 2019 – The Computer Museum of America will host its official grand opening on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at the museum located at 5000 Commerce Parkway, Roswell, GA 30076.

Over the past forty years, computing has grown from a few gadgets to an almost universal extension of human life. Yet while computing has become commonplace, the history of its innovation is being lost every day as ‘old’ technology is discarded, recycled or consigned to a landfill. The Computer Museum of America was created to preserve this history and educate visitors on the past and future of computing, empowering the innovators of tomorrow.
“Anything that is in the collection, no matter how primitive to a previous generation, is magic,” says Lonnie Mimms, CEO of Mimms Enterprises and founder of the Computer Museum of America. “We want the Computer Museum of America to be a center of inspiration for all generations to be encouraged to go out and do something great.”
Admission to the museum are priced from $12-$15 and will give attendees access to exhibits such as A Tribute to Apollo 11 featuring a replica of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, Vanquishing the Impossible: a collection of super computers illustrating how these remarkable machines led to dramatic improvements in weather forecasting and national security, and the Historical Timeline exhibit that shows the advancements in information and data technology – from the early abacus and slide rule up to the ubiquitous “super computers” we call smart phones.
With 10,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event space, the Computer Museum of America offers a unique environment in which to host corporate or social events.
