Virtual New Media Museum

The New Media Museum collects and preserves new media artifacts and history. The museum is especially focused on preserving functional demos of media technologies that did not succeed in the “marketplace,” but insiders and historians tend to agree held unrealized potential. In order to support this goal, the museum maintains a “living archive” of computing hardware, operating systems, utilities and productivity software as well as applications in areas such as education, information services, hypermedia and extended reality (XR). There will also be a virtual museum to explore in the near future! More …
