The museum as part of their legal agreement - was that they had to advertise it - which I think they only did 'locally' ? I even had to ask to get my name displayed at the exhibition as the person who supplied all the artefacts - in case anyone asked questions !

It has about 1/4 hardware artefacts ,1/10th paperware I've got and only about 1/100th of the original space paintings artworks.

I'm doing some more this year - details being finalised - so hopefully may be able advertise a bit better :-))

This museum - like several others - was very 'tight' on the legal and political correctness side of things. Unfortunately, it seems to be a trend with museuems these last few years?

As part of a vacation in England this Christmas, I stopped by the exhibition of Phill's collection in the museum in Stockport, Cheshire. I have to say, it was incredibly impressive, and I am very glad that I took the time. Many of the pieces were on a par with items I had seen in London's Science Museum a few days before.

Very, Very Impressive Phill! Thank you for sharing. What an outstanding display! Reminds me of some of the items in the Astronaut Hall of Fame. Great show!
