(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,Danupdate,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 IndiegogoDan
