Founded in 2019 by Dr. Eric S. Ackerman, the Intergalactic Museum of Computing And Technology History aims to be one of the leading computer museums in all of the universe! In the future, we envision a physical museum where visitors can learn and discover all about computers and various other technologies in a hands-on environment.

Currently a student at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Matthew is actively pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology. His interest in the preservation and history of computers and technology stems from his father aforementioned above, Eric Ackerman. In addition, he actively enjoys playing retro arcade and pinball machines, so much so that he has a world record score on the machine “Ice Cold Beer”.
