The New Media Museum’s mission is to collect and preserve digital media artifacts and history, and then share that with the pubic through engaging exhibits in a variety of venues.

In order to serve that mission, the museum maintains a “living archive” of personal computing hardware, operating systems, utilities and productivity software as well as interesting applications in areas such as education, information services, hypermedia, virtual worlds and extended reality (XR).

The museum is especially focused on preserving the ways in which media transitioned from anolog to digital as well as preserving functional demos of technologies that did not succeed in the “marketplace,” but insiders and historians tend to agree held unrealized potential.
