A short time after our group formed we made arrangements for a private tour of The Computer Museum in Boston. Our member Carl has a detailed write-up of the visit and the collection that we saw. Not long after our 1996 visit TCM closed and the collection was moved to a new home on the west coast which became the Computer History Museum.

Another of our members created The Retro-Computing Lab Millspace Tour which gives a nice snapshot of what we were doing between late 1996 when we moved into the Eagle Street facility and mid-1998 when the page was last updated. Warning:
This page may take some time to load if you are viewing graphics.
There are nearly a dozen 300 x 200 pixel images on John's tour page, some of which are larger than 20 KB. At that time I was using a 9,600 bps modem so it would have taken about 4 minutes to load the entire page back then...
