The 20th Century Technology Museum was founded to exhibit items that showcase the highlights of technological developments in the 20th century. While this may seem too recent a subject for a historical museum, with the rapid pace of technological change, items from the first half of the 20th century are truly "museum pieces" at this point. Technology from the latter half of the century may not seem so antiquated, but items from this period help to show how the earlier items relate to current technology. Major technological developments of the 20th century include:

* Electronic media and recording/reproduction (radio, teleivision, film, phonograph, etc.)
* Computers
* Home appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave oven, air conditioning)
* Telephones
* Automobiles
* Aircraft and spacecraft
* Agricultural mechanization
* Medical devices
