A museum devoted to showcasing early products of Apple opened this week near Warsaw, Poland, offering visitors the chance to see dozens of computers, accessories, software in original boxes, posters, and other Apple memorabilia from several versions of the Apple I desktop computer to newer laptops and iPods.
Collector Jacek Łupina opened the Apple Muzeum in part of his home, including the living room, in the small town of Łoś, according to AppleWorld.Today.
Another Apple museum in Prague, Czech Republic, features the largest private collection of Apple products, according to its website.
Here are five things visitors to Łupina's museum can see.
In addition to having several versions of the Apple I computer, the museum features a replica of its motherboard. It is part of the Apple I that Łupina is building himself. The Apple I was designed and hand built in 1967 by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple. It was the Apple Computer Co.'s first product.
The museum includes an old Power Mac G4, which was the first item Łupina bought that fueled his passion for his collection. Apple heralded its series of Power Mac G4s to be the first personal supercomputers, reaching speeds of 4 to 20 gigaFLOPS. The series was made between 1999 and 2004.
Łupina's museum also includes a new, unopened Apple Bandai Pippin gaming console. Apple designed the unit based off its Pippin platform, a derivative of its MacIntosh platform. Bandai Namco Holdings Inc. produced the system between 1996 and 1997.
In addition to having a special "Woz" edition of the Apple IIGS, the museum also features two Apple II clones. One is a German industrial computer, and the other was built in Bulgaria in 1986.
Łupina's collection includes a NeXT station and cube computer. NeXT was a computer and software company created by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in 1985 after he was ousted by Apple. NeXT's stations were built for businesses and institutions of higher education. Apple bought NeXT in 1997.
