People's Computer Museum

Small 501(c)3 hackerspace that showcases a rotating set of vintage hardware lent by local enthusiasts. PCM facitates interactions with tech from the past.

Working on a video that'd look killer if it were made with early computer graphics software? Need help fixing that VAX you found? Looking to log hours programming on ancient UNIX? Come hack with us.

Mission: Our vision is to educate and empower curious individuals of all kinds through free hands-on access to the most uncommon and innovative computers of the past.

[08/23/17]   Thank you to those who have messaged this page to offer up hardware. We'll have to decline; PCM doesn't own any exhibits. We don't take permanent vintage computer donations. (Tools for the space, on the other hand, are always welcome.) We're a venue for folks to share their own machines- and a space where retrocomputing enthusiasts can connect and share their learnings. We started when our founders wanted a place to share key projects from their personal collections- projects with educational and historical value. Think of us as a show & tell matchmaker. What's YOUR project? Lend it to us as a rotating exhibit! What do you want to see? We'll reach out to our network and get an exhibit brought in! But as an organization, we want to stay away from permanent custodianship of a bunch of heavy equipment ;)

[10/30/16]   If you find yourself in Cap Hill tonight for Halloween, remember that People's Computer Museum is open for Beer n' Hacks. Stop by!

[08/14/16]   We need crafty volunteers with good organizational skills in the Seattle area who have a passion for vintage hardware. Wanna get involved to help us plan events, and guide the overall direction of PCM? Send us a message.

[03/01/16]   For our next event, we're thinking of c. 1995 platform wars. What do people think of a Solaris vs. BeOS vs. Windows 95 vs. OpenStep vs. Macintosh vs. OS/2 vs. IRIX vs. AMIGA petting zoo? So many GUIs!

[01/03/16]   Got a machine you want to see? A platform you want to hack on? Question you'd like answered? PCM is open outside of special events by making a free appointment. For details, call us at 206.395.6477
