As the dog days of summer whimper to an end, workers everywhere are scraping together a few last days of vacation before the kids head back to school and the days grow shorter. While the beach may be fun for the more pedestrian vacationers, tech geeks know that no vacation would be complete without some quality museum time, preferably amidst a collection of silicon-based artifacts worth blogging about. Visit just one, or take a tour of all eight we've collected here from Silicon Valley to Montana to the U.K. The following technology museums are a perfect way to pay homage to the annals of computer history, and to teach the young ones that there was a time before iPads and netbooks.
