The Australian Computer Museum is open to the general public for membership tours by appointment. We are open on most Saturdays and some Wednesdays to members and their guests.
You can apply for a tour by contacting us. Read about this below.
A membership tour of the museum is by appointment and is $5 for Adults and $2 for under 18. Under 18’s require a guardian 18 or older. The fee equates a 1 week pass and when you become a member within 30 days, your tour fee will be discounted from your membership fee.
Why is this necessary?
As we continue to curate the exhibits for their eventual display in an appropriate location, context is lost meaning that guests need to be walked through the exhibits and workshop by a member to explain the objects and their significance, explain the context and ensure safety and security.
Up to this point, the president @DigitalRampage (Adrian Franulovich) has been committed to guesting most guests through, however this is unsustainable as it is taking him away from building the organisation and expanding it and curating and building the displays and workshops.
So please, if you wish to come along and simply look at the museum, gauge interest to become a member drop a note below, send a DM or get in touch and we will link you with a member to provide a guided tour.
$52 for the first year and $36 subsequent years as at 1/9/2023 and a number of benefits are part of this. The membership is self assessable as tax deductible if it assists in your generation of income.
You can also see our historic artefacts on gazetted open days and events.
Individuals who wish to volunteer their time and experience in assisting the ACMS can come along to workshops and join in, you will still need to link up with an existing member to guide you through the process. Volunteering can be from simple cleaning to full blown large restorations, so get involved and feel good! We are happy to provide certificates to volunteers who provide more than 10 hours of support to the organisation.
Open Days - Events
The next general open day will be on Saturday the 18th of November 2023 for Show & Tell.
