This reminds me of how disappointed I was the last time I visited
the Science and Industry Museum at Chicago. For years they had a
mathematical section, which was indeed a little musty, but full of
good stuff. Now this has been replaced by an exhibit on computation
and its history. Now this also contains some good stuff, but unfortunately
there is almost no mathematics there.
