My buddy Peter and his parents have just launched the website for their space age museum! As I understand it, the museum is currently a barn hidden somewhere in Connecticut. These guys want to take the show on the road and use their collection of cool stuff to educate people about another time and how our everyday objects were infused with our collective cultural dream of reaching outer space. The 1990s saw a resurgence in futurism in designed objects, and to some degree that is still a trend in conjunction with the “green” movement.

Tactile learning is great for children: what an AWESOME library program this could be. What a great way to inform the young, aspiring astronauts of tomorrow! Librarians should contact the Space Age Museum and get involved!

  1. Hello, I am planning on creating a website for my space age tv sets (54 of them). I have been told I have one of the largest collections of unique sets (Paul Allen’s currator for Seattle’s Sci-Fi museum paid me this complement).

    Anyway, it’s nice to see this website. Keep up the good work. I will send you a link when I have it up and running. Tim
