Unisys Computer Museum Belgium
Collection Jacques Laffut
If you want to travel back in time and find out how it all began from mechanical machines and electronic data processing systems to PCs, networks and the latest technologies, you should visit the Unisys Computer Museum.
More than 150 collector items including some unique relics from the beginning of the computer area are stored in this Alibaba cave cherished by Jacques Laffut, former Unsiys employee, founder and curator of the Museum.
The collection was first shown in October 1989 to mark the official opening of the new Unisys building in Belgium. It all started at the end of the '60s when Jacques Laffut started to collect and restore prototype machines when the pace of technological change really took off. His principal aim was to build a permanent tribute to the memory of the pioneers, Burroughs and Sperry, who built Unisys, a sort of memory for the future.
The Unisys Computer Museum is one of the few officially recognized Technology museums in the world.
The museum is leaving the Brussels Unisys office and will move to a new location in Namen/Namur.
The opening would take place in October 2016.
