Where to see vintage computers in (your town here) ???

Hello fellow collectors,

There's a new resource for finding places to see antique computers, at the
(updated) web site of the Computer Collector E-mail Newsletter.

The URL remains the same as before (http://news.computercollector.com) but now
there's a much improved section called "On the road" with a directory of
museums and stores.

I created this page because I keep seeing the same question appear on
classiccmp over and over again, and then I started getting the same question
from newsletter readers too.

Currently there are 53 listings. Mostly they are museums (some for adults and
some for children) and there are some stores too. In the future, I plan to add
more listings of electronics and surplus stores, swap meets locations, and

The "On the road" directory and the newsletter itself, which still publishes
every Monday(-ish), are and will always remain free.

However, I do ask for your help. If you know of any museums, stores that sell
old computers or relevant parts, swap meets, or science/technology bookstores,
no matter how small or out-of-the-way they are, then please tell me. For now
the directory is sorted by U.S. state, but when it becomes more full, I'll
probably make it searchable and also separated by category (museum, store,
etc.)... eventually I'll add non-U.S. locations too. Another idea I have is to
post reviews from people who've been to the locations in person.

I hope this helps!
