The collection focuses on machines that were primarily used, developed or produced in Germany.

There is a representative exhibit from each of the important generations of IBM machines and systems. The special feature: Almost all of the machines, systems and devices on display are still fully functional and are presented to visitors “in action“. In this way, the public is vividly shown the pioneering role that IBM played in the development of data processing.

The house on the history of IBM data processing was run on a voluntary basis by IBM retirees. They restore the exhibits and keep them ready for use.

The historical collection from the House for the History of IBM Data Processing continues to be maintained at another location, but is not accessible to the public. presents here one of the many museum pages.
