Revolution celebrates the spectacular history of computing, from the mysterious ancient devices to technologies of the future. Journey through 19 galleries displaying over 1,000 unique artifacts; discover, in our multimedia displays, the backstories, development drama, and astonishing breakthroughs of the gadgets, gurus and companies you love, or love to hate!
