QWERTY Reigns Supreme – Mostly

The QWERTY keyboard was invented along with the very first typewriter, and is still in use today. Lurking just below your fingertips on your sleek new two-pound laptop computer is a Victorian interface that has not changed in over 100 years. While QWERTY reigns supreme, various countries have put their own spin on the classic English-language keyboard.

Typewriter Tom returns to CMOA this September for an interactive exhibit of typewriters from different countries. Ranging from Finnish to Farsi, it is a journey worth exploring!

“QWERTY Reigns Supreme” with Typewriter Tom, September 9-10, 12:00 – 5:00, free for members or with museum admission.
