- Evan, Dan, Bill and all,

Many of the links that you would expect to work don't and vice-versa - like the first one in the list.
>>> >[CA] Computer History Association of California http://www.chac.orgLong since defunct.
But the link still works!
>>> >[MO] American Computer Museum <http://www.compustory.com/index.htmlThis one is kind of weird ... nobody from that organization has ever
returned my phone calls, and I've never met anyone who visited.
>>> >[MN] Charles Babbage InstituteNot a museum. Purely a research institute.
>>> >[WI] Chippewa Falls Museum of Industry and TechnologyNot a computer museum, just a museum with a good computer section.
>>> >[CA] Tech Museum of Innovation <Same as above.
>>> >[TX] Goodwill Computerworks MuseumRecent cctalk discussion indicates = bad news. Something about the guy
who did it left, so what remains isn't much, IIRC.
>>> >[CA] San Diego Computer MuseumClosed, and moved its collections to a local U. library.
I have some other updates, will have to gather them and post later.
Chippewa Falls happens to be Seymour Cray's hometown(while at Cray, Inc)
This is under the 'exhibits' section, it's not just any kind of exhibit - but no photos online :(
Come see the largest museum collection of supercomputers. This collection is representative of years of hard work at Cray Research, Inc.- work that literally changed the world! This exhibit offers not only the supercomputer collection but also video's and information about Seymour Cray. Seymour Cray was born in Chippewa Falls, and was known worldwide as the Father of Supercomputers. He started Cray Research Company right here in Chippewa Falls!
