Googleing for something else, I came across the museum of the Dutch

Apparently they have a PDP-5, a PDP-8s, a PDP-8e and a PDP-11/34 in their
collection & display. Pictures can be seen at


text is only in Dutch.

Apparently the PDP-5 was the first process-computer in the Netherlands
at that time (1965) and was used in the oxysteel division to analyse the
steel for quality & contamination using spectral analysis.
