Guided Tours


Immerse yourself in an educational and fun universe by taking part in a guided tour.

You start with Programmed disappearance, an original and provocative exhibition that tells the story of computer science in a different way.

Then you can admire our permanent exhibition, perhaps with a touch of nostalgia, the museum’s flagship products: Swiss microcomputers and mammoth computers, including several Cray computers.

  • Guided tours are paying and can last between 1 and 2 hours.
  • The language of the visits is French. (English-speaking guide on request).
  • The money is used to finance the Museum’s various activities.

Guided tours for families or individuals are organized every first Saturday of the month upon registration!
