      Like John I'm new and haven't said much, but to me there should be an
      official name like the one proposed by Evan - "MARCH Computer Museum @
      InfoAge" or as Jim suggests something with the location (though I'd stay
      away from immediate locale, as locations can change at some point) so
      maybe "Mid-Atlantic Computer Museum", though I like "Mid-Atlantic
      ComputerMuseum @ InfoAge" as that denotes location and has a tech sound to

      As to a cool nickname, people can call it something like the "Retro" or
      the "VinC" (Vintage Computers), without that being its official name.

      Just my haypenny of advise.
