From August 2010 to December 2011, Computer System Exploitation Laboratory staff supported by some student administrators participated in the creation of the museum. They focused on revitalization of outdated hardware.
The Museum was officially opened on 10 November 2011 by the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science– dr hab. Andrzej Rozkosz, prof. UMK and, for many years the head of Computer System Exploitation Laboratory, dr Andrzej Kurpiel.
The largest part of the museum's collections consists of devices used in daily work in years 1980-2000 by the community of the Faculty. Many of the exhibits have been received by the Museum from private collections of the staff and students of the Faculty.
The permanent exhibition includes devices such as personal computers, laptops, servers, network devices, printers, copiers, computers, calculators, computer components and accessories.
On 21 April 2012 project "internet cafe retro" together with interactive presentation of 8 and 16-bit computers was launched during event of Festival of Arts and Sciences.
