Welcome and Current Exhibit

Essay Contest Interest Form

Thank you so much for visiting our site. We have an exciting  line-up of  programming and free community events for the whole family.  Founded in 1966, the Cupertino Historical Society is the only organization in Cupertino dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of the history and culture of this area.  The Cupertino Historical Museum opened its doors in 1990, coinciding with the Quinlan Community Center.

Visit our latest exhibit, "Homage to the Information Technology Revolution." The exhibition tells the story of visionaries and entrepreneurs who, between 1975 and 1985, turned digital breakthroughs into a cultural revolution. During the next 30 years, this group of pioneers, championing what they called the “noble cause,” making information accessible to everyone. 

A series of video-interviews with the players of the time – including John Sculley, Allan Alcorn, Daniel Kottke, Jack Tramiel, Chuck Peddle, Lee Felsestein and Steve Wozniak – will take visitors through the exhibition’s machines that made the history of the IT Revolution. Among them, the Programma 101 (Italy, Olivetti, 1965) and a very rare Apple-1 (Usa, Apple, 1976) complete with its original kit: the only “survivor” (there are no other examples known) with the original box sent from the Los Altos garage at Steve Jobs parents’ house, the original invoice featuring “Steven” as the salesman, a personal letter from Mr. Jobs to the customer and one of the first BASIC tapes without an Apple logo. For the first time in its history, the toolbox Steve Wozniak used to assemble the Apple-1 will be on display with his creation.  

Museum Hours: Wednesday--Saturday 10 am to 4 pm
