@Rockhead,
Do you have a boat that needs an anchor? Razz

@Rockhead,
No museum is going to want the hardware especially if it isn't in perfect out from the box new shape. Can you imagine how many people would be trying to sell or simply donate their family gaming console? Far too many I suppose.

Why don't you look around for a modern adapter and play the thing (if you have the cartridges/games to boot)? Or Ebay the thing for the cost of shipping the computer if you're not interested in keeping it.

I think the following link is perhaps the only brick and mortar video game museum presence:
International Center for the History of Electronic Games
http://www.icheg.org/
In Rochester, New York.

@Rockhead,
It may be worth $50-150 on ebay.

@parados,
I like the way you think...

(I don't ever wish to own a boat. and you can walk across the lake here)

If you don't want it, I would certainly suggest ebay or craigs list. There are still people around that want old hardware for nostalgia's sake.

@McGentrix,
had I ever used one, I might feel nostalgic.

I played with cars...

we had 2 computers in my high school. and a waiting list for the class.

but if it's gonna be worth a lot more one of these days to some crusty old geek, I have room to pack it back in the box and store it...

I still have my old Atari game console and the game cartridges. Also have the original Nintendo. Some days when I am absolutely bored or just want to walk down memory lane, I'll drag one of them it out, hook it up to the TV and play a round or two.
