That sounds like the museum we have at hack42.nl. we are a hackerspace
with a enormous collection of old computers but we are not open at
regular times. of course making the collection available in an database
on the web and digitising the documentation is one of our goals (besides
having fun with those machines. :-) )

Rather think of this as a kind of a maker-space for old systems; There is a lot of interest in Seattle- largely people from the software industry- who would love to code something on a real PDP 11, Symbolics or a Xerox or a 3B2 / BLIT, but aren't equipped to handle care and feeding of these sorts of machines.
