Our Mission

"To inspire young people for the future workforce by saving old and new technology."

The Rhode Island Computer Museum (RICM) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1999 in Rhode Island to preserve our rich vintage computer history and offer a glimpse of the past. RICM's mission statement is "procuring and preserving items that relate to computer science and its history; disseminating knowledge, and encouraging research in computer science by means of visits, lectures, discussions, and publications. Inspiring young people for the future workforce by saving old and new technology."

Exciting news! RICM will be expanding our STEM programs to STEAM – we’re absorbing the wonderful hands-on, open-ended educational programs from the Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art.
