Do you want donations of hardware, software or other historic things?
We are not actively expanding the collection right now, but sometimes we will either buy or adopt something if it is really interesting. If you have an interesting piece of new media history, check out this page about donations before contacting us.
Do you loan hardware, software or other things in the library?
No, we do not lend hardware, software or anything else. If/when there is a physical location, then it will be possible to arrange visits to see demos and view archival resources.
Where can I find out more?
The best place to start learning about the New Media Museum is on the About page. You can also find out a lot more about the history of the museum by visiting the History page on the former NEW Computer Museum site. The content from that page will be moved here in the future.
