Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

NeXT Computers

NeXT Software Inc. was founded in 1985 by Steve Jobs after he resigned from Apple Computer. Their computers were advanced but expensive and therefore not as commercially successful as other computers of the era. The NeXT operating system, NeXT Step, was based around Unix and in 1996 Apple Computer bought NeXT computers for $400 million and used the NeXT operating system as the basis for Mac OS X.
