NZ Computer & Video Game Museum

Postby MarkBarlow on Tue Oct 01, 2013 5:25 pm

Hey everyone, we are working on establishing a Computer and Video Game Museum in the Wyndham Quarter in Auckland.
Check out our Facebook page and Like us @
And please consider contributing to our crowd funding campaign for the seed capital @
We need to build momentum so please don't wait to contribute as everyone one else will wait as well if you do!
Every contributor goes in the draw to attend a lunch with Woz (Steve Wozniak - co-founder of Apple) and the launch party!

We are considering several spaces between 1,000m2 and 2,500m2.

The Museum will include...
- A full restoration workshop that members will have access to on member evenings / weekends.
- A cafe / Bar.
- Open exhibition spaces with interactive displays.
- Themed rooms with double layer glass walls with exhibits inside. The inner wall will have an electrochromic film allowing the room to be made private with the flip of a switch while still allowing the exhibits to be viewed from outside.

Possible NZ oriented exhibits might include...
- Poly's
- NZ Games and Game Consoles
- Key NZ figures in the history of computing...

Collectors will be able to loan pieces for specific exhibits and receive a % of the revenue generated.

Any other ideas / feedback or contributions would be most appreciated.
Mark :-)
