That is the main reason that I collect minicomputers, PERQs, etc. I can
get amongst the CPU electornics, I can look at the outputs of the ALU on
a logic analyser, I can watch microinstructions doing their thing. You
can't do that on a micro :-)

And FWIW, I am still learning, and probably will carry on doing that for
a very long time.
