We welcome donations of equipment, software and documentation, but please get in touch before bringing anything along to the museum as we have limited space. Storage is a big problem and we cannot accept items unless we have specifically agreed to have them! Please do not be offended if we cannot accept your kind offer, but please do ask!
At the moment, we especially welcome:
- Computer hardware pre-1965
- ICT/ICL 1900 series mainframe esp. 1904S or 2903
- Anything DEC that isn't a VAX, PDP8, or a PDP11.
When we accept artifacts into the collection, it will be under two possible categories:
- Items that are rare, unique or require special attention and care will be accessioned to our special collection and not normally be usable by the public.
- Items that are not rare or where we hold a number of similar items, will be accessioned to the handling collection, and those items will be available to be used by visitors to the museum or for spares to keep existing systems operational.
Please contact us by email in the first instance: email@example.com
