    Retro Computer Museum open day

    A new project started in the UK recently by Andy Spencer is to try and open a retro computer museum that will feature working examples of computers and consoles throughout the history of gaming.

    So far he has managed to start collecting together quite a few working systems ready for the museum. And the next stage is to hold an open day to see how popular this idea is with the general public.

    I've posted an article on the main site for more details, which you can see by going to http://www.classicamiga.com/content/view/4936/63/

    If you can get to this open day I think you will be helping Andy out greatly with support for this idea.

    He already has a website up and running at http://www.retrocomputermuseum.co.uk

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    That sounds great! I'd definitely go and see it if it was somewhat near me.

    I'd go as well, but it's a bit too far unfortunately.

    Best of luck to Andy and his project!

    I'm attending the open days (I think I posted a topic about this quite some time ago) and I'm an avid supporter of Andy's efforts.

    We're all a friendly bunch, and I'd advise anyone who's up for it, to come along to one (or even both) of the open days.

    Great video showing the last event. You have managed to collect a great range of systems together from the images and video. And I'm glad that so far the events have been a success.

    Sadly it is a bit too far for me to travel to for the next event, but you have classicamiga's on going support, with any announcements or adverts you would like to place in the new section of classicamiga being most welcome.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
