Want to try your hand on an IBM punch card machine? Punched cards were widely used through much of the 20th century in the data processing industry. Critical record-keeping was done on punch cards across many industries and dropping a stack of cards was a disaster. Come learn more about how this machine was used and punch your own souvenir card to take home during the demo from 2-4PM!

 

The museum is open this weekend Friday 12-5PM and Saturday 10AM-5PM.

Visit our website for more information, current hours and more upcoming events including additional punchcard demos during special holiday hours.
