My museum.

Introduction

The Commodore Info Museum (CIP). In the past years I have collected many Commodore computers and related items. In the beginning I had all items in a storage space because I could not put it in my home.
To keep track of the items I started the www.commodore-info.com web page. This page made it possible for me what I already had or not.

But when I got a bigger house I started to make my museum. This is a report about building the museum.

The start.

Building the CIP museum (1). The start of the build. The museum is in the attic of my house. In the middle space for 8 computers. On the sides space for 2 x 6 computers.

Test-fitting with some 1084's. Under the tables are storage compartments for spare's ect.

Middle table.

Building the CIP museum (2). Putting in the middle table with storage compartment and above that an extra table top. This brings the total of computer places to about 24.

Currently I'm putting in 11 double electrical outlets to power all my Commodore computers.
