Mysterious Apple Collector opens museum in Prague #Apple #TechNews
Although the official Apple Store is yet to come to the capital of the Czech Republic, the city has recently seen the launch of the Apple Museum, which claims to host the largest private exhibition of its kind.
Housed in three buildings in Prague’s old town, the museum has an extensive list of 472 exhibits on display—from nearly every Apple product ever built to Steve Jobs’ business cards from his times at NeXT and Pixar.
Entry to the museum costs €11 (£8), with all proceeds “donated to charity purposes.” In addition to the actual exhibition, a raw vegan restaurant called Steven’s Food will soon open up, serving foods that were probably enjoyed by the Apple co-founder.The museum’s website calls Prague “the first city where you can see this unique exhibition,” which could mean that the collection might be on the move at some point.
Apple doesn’t have an official museum of its products, although there used to be one that Jobs closed soon after his return to the company in 1997. However, unofficial museums—both virtual and brick-and-mortar—are in no short supply. In November this year, All About Apple, another museum that claims to have the biggest collection of Apple products, opened in a new, permanent location in Savona, Italy. There the visitors can see more than 10,000 exhibits, including computers in full working order, printers, hard disks, and more.
