Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland – CCMI
Founded in 2010 and located at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at the DERI Building, NUI Galway, the ‘Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland’, tells the fascinating story of key moments in the history of communications.
Yet it is designed to be more than just a tribute to the past and a collection of historical artifacts. For it has a central tenet of inspiring today’s youth to consider science and engineering careers by highlighting the importance of ‘innovation’ to human progress and the crucial but oftentimes overlooked contributions of young people and of Ireland to advances in global communications technologies
A multi-sectoral board overses the museum development programme. The chairperson is Dr. Chris Coughlan of Hewlett Packard and includes representatives from GMIT, Engineers Ireland, IT NUI Galway, Insight NUI Galway, the Irish Diaspora, 091 Labs, small business sector and the Galway Education Centre.
Curator is Brendan Smith, Education Officer at Insight Galway
