The Version Museum

Ever wanted to see what the biggest websites and apps looked like in the 90s or 00s? You’ve got The Wayback Machine but with Version Museum, you get more than just sites:

Version Museum showcases the visual history of popular websites, operating systems, applications, and games that have shaped our lives. Much like walking through a real-life museum, this site focuses on the design changes of historic versions of technology, rather than just the written history behind it.

Version Museum launched in May 2019 and curated content is added regularly (without looting from nations in colonial wars).

Examples of sites, games, and interfaces include:

The Windows 95 welcome dialog box

If you need a trip down tech memory lane, I urge you to visit Version Museum. What’s more, entry is free and, by visiting, you’re automatically adhering to social distancing (but you should still use hand sanitiser if you don’t have access to soap and water).
