PEEK&POKE Club/Computer museum Rijeka

Opened on 22nd of September 2007, PEEK&POKE is one of the few permanent displays of vintage computing technology in Europe. Located in the centre of the city of Rijeka and spread across 300 square meters of space, it contains more than 1000 exhibits of the world and local computer history, ranging from very early calculators and game consoles to rare and obsolete computers from the nineties.

The Computer Museum PEEK&POKE is an educational and non-profit project. The long-term idea of the project is to create a popular gathering place for computer enthusiasts to learn and have fun.

At the museum you also find a library of books and magazines from that era, or you can take a rest in our lounge area where you can also take advantage of the internet connection.
