A good day for the museum with columnist Catherine Van Noy and staff photographer Matt Gentry from the Roanoke Times newspaper. Catherine did an interview with me and our assistant curator Emily Wilson. Matt and Catherine both had a big interest in the historical computers and the interview was truly a fun experience.  I will post a link when the story is published.

Update - Here is the story Catherine wrote for the New River section of the Roanoke times - "Floyd boast microcomputer museum"

New banner at Apple 1 computer Display 
Today we added 3 new banners in the museum. The banners can also be read just looking into the museum from outside so they help during times we are not open and for visitors to the museum.

This banner for the Apple 1 Computer display describes the computer as the rarest of collectible computers.

You can read the banners by clicking on the photo.
