      RCS/RI (Retrocomputing Society of Rhode Island, Inc. aka RCS) and RICM
      (Rhode Island Computer Museum), sprang up independently in Rhode
      Island back in the mid 1990s. 

      With a good track record like this, there's ought to be no hesitation in seeking addt'l funding to add some incremental improvements  - using any of the new crowd sourcing approaches these days. I see small and large museums take advantage of this already.
      eg, KickStarter, Indegogo, FundAnything, 


      back home on Long Island, there's an old Tesla's Laboratory, known as the Wardenclyffe Tower - just recently the effort has been underway into turning this into a museum.
      They just raised $1,370,461 on Indiegogo
