Ask Slashdot: What Should a Children’s Computer Museum Look Like?

Long-time Slashdot reader theodp writes: If you’re a wealthy techie looking for a way to establish your legacy, the City of Sarasota has a 117,000-square-foot children’s science museum that’s vacant and could use a little TLC. Housed on prime Bayfront property, the building that once housed the Gulf Coast Wonder and Imagination Zone might make a fine children’s computer museum. So in case any of those CEOs who stress the importance of getting children interested in CS are reading and want to put their money where their mouth is, any suggestions about what a kids’ version of the Computer History Museum should look like? Something like an Apple Store? Microsoft Store? Something else?
