This small museum contains lots of IBM history. It has wonderful displays and detailed information about the formation of IBM. You can view the earliest time machines up through much more modern achievements. A pleasant museum to stroll through.

An amazing (but small) museum in the center of Endicott. It's too bad they don't combine with the Bundy Museum and The Center for Technology and Innovation in Binghamton to make an important museum.

They have many computers etc. from different eras. It is better to see the actual machines than reading from books. The volunteers there also give really nice and detailed guided tour. They only open for a very short time every week, though.

Went on the guided tour of IBM.....thought I had heard the majority of stories from start to current. Learned little-known facts about the startup and the Watson family. Items selected for display are very pertinent and the explanations of some are most helpful. Looking forward...More

Been natives of this area for 40 years. Many of our friends/neighbors were IBM employees. Stopped in on a whim and were pleasantly surprised at the exhibits. Mike the docent was a terrific tour guide.
