Thanks for the shout-out! We're eagerly awaiting reopening and will keep everyone informed when that happens. Our vintage computers are getting lonely! ☹️💽⌨️💾

#DidYouKnowMGA has a Museum of Technology located in the Macon Campus library? It's a mini-museum of vintage computers, video games, and more hosted by the School of Computing. Dr. Tina Ashford leads a group of students in acquiring vintage tech and getting it up and running again when possible. At the moment, of course, the museum is closed along with other campus buildings but we hope to re-open soon. @MGATechnologyMuseum #MGA mga.edu

Parking Info

Middle Georgia State University welcomes visitors who have business on campus. All visitors should report to the MGA Police Department for a Visitor’s Parking Permit unless they have made prior arrangements with the University to obtain one. This entitles the visitor to park in designated visitor parking spaces. If visitor spaces are not available, visitors may be directed to park in another parking space by representatives or officials of the University.

We recommend entering campus from the Ivey Drive entrance, where you'll walk past the MGA Police Department on your way to the Library, where the MoT is housed.

Seagate ST-412 hard drives (or Mini-Winchesters, if you're vintage yourself!). Looking at 30MB of early 1980s goodness! #MoT
New art hanging in the #MGA Museum of Technology. Hopefully you can come see it and the collection this fall! 🥰
We'll be at the #MoT today at 2pm if anyone wants to stop by for a guided tour of our collection.
Had some fun at the museum today and it was Museum Selfie Day 🙂
Sad news for fans of the 8-bit era.
