Who was not in the world's largest computer museum yet? Highly recommended.The Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum (HNF) in Paderborn is the largest computer museum in the world (as of 2015). It is named after the Paderborn-based computer pioneer and business entrepreneur Heinz Nixdorf.In the years 1992 to 1996, the HNF was designed and built in the premises of the former head office of Nixdorf Computer AG by the Berlin architects Ludwig Thürmer and Gerhard Diel and a science team around the mathematician Norbert Ryska. In the presence of the then Federal Chancellor Helmut Kohl, the house was opened on October 24, 1996 and has an annual average of over 118,000 visitors, so that the 1.5 million visitor limit has already been exceeded. The facility is supported by the Foundation Westfalen; next to the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation, created from the estate of Heinz Nixdorf.
