Overview

Open every Saturday from 10am-2pm. Endicott, NY is the birthplace of IBM, a company that literally changed the world. The IBM portion of the Endicott history museum was the museum created by IBM in 1984 for its employees and customers. Endicott was also home of the Endicott Johnson Shoe Co - the world's largest shoe manufacturer by 1950. Historical displays document the history of IBM and the EJ Shoe Co and explain how the small village of Endicott, NY became the home of two industrial giants on the world wide scene.

This small museum contains lots of IBM history. It has wonderful displays and detailed information about the formation of IBM. You can view the earliest time machines up through much more modern achievements. A pleasant museum to stroll through.

By all means, this is the very town where IBM began and the old factories are half a block away. The museum is very good and if you ever worked at IBM you should do yourself a favor and stop by.

An amazing (but small) museum in the center of Endicott. It's too bad they don't combine with the Bundy Museum and The Center for Technology and Innovation in Binghamton to make an important museum.

They have many computers etc. from different eras. It is better to see the actual machines than reading from books. The volunteers there also give really nice and detailed guided tour. They only open for a very short time every week, though.

Been natives of this area for 40 years. Many of our friends/neighbors were IBM employees. Stopped in on a whim and were pleasantly surprised at the exhibits. Mike the docent was a terrific tour guide.
