Formerly known as the American Computer Museum, the Museum of Modern Human Progress was founded in May 1990 by Barbara and George Keremedjiev as a non-profit organization.

The museum is currently the oldest extant museum dedicated to the history of computers in the world (The Computer Museum in Boston opened first, but closed in 1999).

Artifacts at the museum include early IBM computers, a Burroughs 205, an Apple 1 (donated by Steve Wozniak), an antikythera mechanism 1st century replica, and more.
