Museum of Technology

MissionTransparent-MoTLogo_Purple.jpg

The mission of Middle Georgia State University’s Museum of Technology (MoT) is to preserve important technological artifacts that chronicle digital life and to inspire current and future generations of students, educators and the public by learning lessons from the past.

Vision

MoT will create an environment where education and community work in harmony to provide access to historical resources, the sharing of knowledge gained from the resources, and the inspiration for new ideas and innovations.

About

The MoT started in 2018 with one unused display case procured from the library building on the Macon campus of Middle Georgia State University. Over the next year, it expanded to include six more cases in which to display a growing collection of technology related artifacts: Items from complete Personal Computer systems to peripheral equipment to pop-cultural references can all be viewed and the collection is rotated periodically to keep the displays fresh.

Our future plans are expansion of the available space so that more systems can be put on display at one time. Community engagement will come from student-led “Lunch and Learn” sessions where participants can gain hands-on experience with our artifacts. Knowledge sharing will be delivered by student participation at history conferences, vintage computer fairs, and presentations to local community groups.
