> Where is the ENIAC?

ENIAC was amongst the earliest electronic general-purpose computers made. It was Turing-complete, digital and able to solve "a large class of numerical problems" through reprogramming.

Pieces of ENIAC are held by the following institutions:

The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania has four of the original forty panels and one of the three function tables of ENIAC (on loan from the Smithsonian).

The Smithsonian has five panels in the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

The Science Museum in London has a receiver unit on display.

The Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California has three panels and a function table on display (on loan from the Smithsonian Institution).

The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor has four panels, salvaged by Arthur Burks.

The United States Army Ordnance Museum at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, where ENIAC was used, has one of the function tables.

The U.S. Army Field Artillery Museum in Fort Sill, as of October 2014, had obtained seven panels of ENIAC that were previously housed by The Perot Group in Plano, Texas.[52]

The United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, has one of the data entry terminals from the ENIAC.
