Computers and games museum Russia

A Russian museum featuring retro computers from the 60s, 70s and 80s is taking visitors back to the future.

The Museum of Computers in Yekaterinburg has over 600 exhibits and features everything from floppy discs to interactive experiences.

It looks like any office in the 1990s with a bank of bulky monitors and hard drives.

But this is the Museum of Computers in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg and it's taking visitors back in time.

Here, people can learn about the evolution of computers, get acquainted with old machines and technologies as well as play old games on some of the first machines.

While it may not seem that long ago, for some younger visitors playing games like Super Mario feels nostalgic.

The Museum's collection started in 2013 and now has over 600 exhibits; many of those come from abroad, from USA, Japan, Germany and other European countries.

Many of the first Soviet computers were destroyed, so only parts of them survived, like the display of the first Soviet electronic machine M-1 produced in 1951 which is the oldest exhibit at the Museum. The plan is now to reconstruct the rest of the machine so that the exhibit can become operational.

The exhibition also lets people take a journey back in time to see exactly what an IT specialists work place would be like in the 1970s.

Interactive displays also reflect the interiors of a house from different Soviet periods.
