The Mémoires Informatiques foundation's purpose
is to preserve and promote computer heritage.
It manages the Bolo Museum.
The aBCM, the friends of the Bolo Museum association,
promotes the Museum's collections, restores and repairs
old machines. It organizes guided tours.
EPFL has housed the Bolo Museum in its School
of Computer and Communications Sciences since 2002.
The Museum has many examples of the history of Swiss
information technology, particularly those designed
and developed at EPFL.
"Disappearance: the Bolo Museum investigates" exhibit
was designed by the Mémoires Informatiques Foundation
with the assistance of the aBCM.
The new Bolo Museum also exhibits the rarest
and most important objects from its collection
in a permanent exhibit. The Museum has thousands
of objects from the history of computing and information
technology. With this new exhibit, it shakes loose from
a purely chronological template, while still highlighting
computer heritage and history.
