In addition to an extensive collection of computer equipment, radio equipment and telephones the museum makes available for use a series of gaming computers from the 1980s and 1990s.
The museum focuses on the links Co. Galway has to computing and radio. Digital Equipment Corporation's arrival in Galway City in 1971 heralded the birth of Ireland as a global centre for the IT sector.. Galway also played an important role in telecommunications as it was from Clifden that that the first transatlantic radio transmission took place.
