One of the computers will be very happy, we'll give them fresh power, brand new capacitors and a good general cleaning. Obviously, you have unlimited access to enter the museum and see how the machine is doing.

About HomeComputerMuseum

First of all, thank you very much for considering becoming member of exclusive HomeComputerMuseum friends club. This already means a lot to us. You'll be able to help secure the future of this unique museum and be able to see and do exclusive things for Patreons only!

In case you found this page without actually knowing what this is about, here's an introduction:

The HomeComputerMuseum is a museum about (home)computers based in the centre of the Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg), in the technical region of the Netherlands, close to airports like Eindhoven and Dusseldorf and easy to reach by train and car. The museum is 1090m2 and has nearly 400 computers hands-on ready and set-up in the museum, all for our visitors to use. From the early Commodore PET2001, Altair 8800, Tandy TRS80 and Apple II all the way up to early 2000 pc's with Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.5. Since computers will break when they're not used, all computers are prepared to stay on during opening hours and ready to be touched by anyone who wants to. Even printers, modems, scanners and other additional hardware is connected and ready to use. We also have our own repair lab when something breaks. All computers are set up in a environment that's styled in the correct era. It's not a museum, it's an experience!

Next to the museum we have a huge social impact. We rely on volunteers and most of them have an autism spectrum disability. We allow them to explore and expand themselve to hopefully let them return to the normal workforce, we do this by simply value them as equal as everybody else. This is one of our biggest accomplishments and we are an example for other museums in the entire world for this.

In short, we are a non-profit organization that gives chances to people with autism and teaches young children how the old computers work. We strongly believe that in order to understand the future, one must know the past. That's what we're doing.

See, feel, try, play & learn!

We also love to show these old, sometimes forgotten, computers on Youtube and on social media. We need funds to keep this museum up and running and that's where you can help! 

What do I get in return?
You'll be giving a free entrance for as long as you be a member. You will know first what will be in the museum soon and you get a previews or insights in the videos posted.

We also organize events which you'll be able to get it before it's public announced, some of them are even free for Patreons!

Where's the money used for?
Very simple, the income goes out for rent and electrical bills (most computers do use power which is not for free alas). None of the money is used to pay salaries or buy computers, but we do need money to buy parts to keep the machines alive.
Goals
$246.10 of $650 per month
When this goal is reached. We'll do a more regular upload on Youtube and we'll arrange more LAN parties.
