The bizarre Museum of Everything Else is the brainchild of Sam Battle a.k.a. Look Mum No Computer and features technological curiosities from music and science.
Museum of Everything Else
It’s a crazy and endearing place that perfectly reflects the mind of Sam “Look Mum No Computer” Battle and his fascination with experimental and obsolete scientific and musical technology. It’s become a home to many of his wildest creations such as the Furby Organ, the 1,000 Oscillator Mega Drone and the GameBoy MegaMachine but has diversified into all sorts of forgotten areas of technology.
There’s a collection of Electronic Educator Kits that you would buy from Argos 30 years ago, test equipment and signal generators from Marconi, telephony equipment and old phone systems, old handheld gaming consoles and vacuum displays. But that’s not the half of it.
So far Sam has been opening the museum for the odd day for Patreon supporters as he slowly builds towards the idea of making it more public. But for the next couple of dates, the 8th August and the 22nd August there will be tickets available for anyone with an interest.
Here’s a video about how the first day at the museum went and it gives you a good idea about what you can expect to see there:
The Museum of Everything Else is located in Ramsgate in Kent and tickets cost the ridiculous amount of £7.06. Information on public tickets should appear on the Museum website at some point today for the 8th August. Or if you want to support the project and get ahead of the queues then do consider becoming a Patron.
Sounds like the sort of place you could spend an engrossing couple of hours.
