About the Gallery

STARTUP is the first museum exhibition dedicated to the history microcomputer—the little machine that revolutionized the way we live, work and play. The gallery features one-of-a-kind artifacts, video and interactive displays, including “Rise of the Machines” —an immersive multimedia theater experience. visit photograph

Born from the desire of philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen to give back to the Albuquerque community where he and Bill Gates spent their early professional years starting Microsoft, the STARTUP gallery at NMMNHS brings to life the excitement that characterized the early days of the personal computer revolution.

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day.

The STARTUP Gallery is included with regular Museum admission.
