In a move that is sure to please retro computing hobbyists and retro gaming fans alike, Leicester’s popular Retro Computer Museum has announced that it is to make a quantum leap to new and larger premises in the New Year.

After another busy and exciting year of both opening the Leicester HQ in the Troon Way Business Centre, Humberstone Lane and tireless travelling to events around Britain exhibiting and making available some the museum’s remarkable and growing collections, museum organiser Andy Spencer revealed the good news yesterday.

Andy said:

“It is our pleasure to announce the Retro Computer Museum is moving into bigger premises in very early January. It is in the same area as our current unit – just a few doors away.

“This will mean that we will have more storage space, more system space and several other enhancements that we will announce at a later date. We are going from around 1800 sqft to 2400 sqft.

“However, because of this we will be closing at the end of December until the beginning of February. During this time we ask you to continue to support us and we will continue to keep you updated with how the move is going.”

Good luck!

Needless to say, Retro Computing News wishes the Retro Computer Museum all the best in their new home! We will be keeping up with the latest information on the move, and we aim to visit and publish a feature on the ‘new’ museum early next year.
