Andrei Antonov, who has been collecting rare Apple memorabilia for the last three decades, is now publicly floating the idea of creating an Apple Museum in Moscow.

The Moscow printer's collection of rare Apple computer products may become a public tribute to Steve Jobs' life work and the inventiveness of the corporation he founded with dance-aficiando Steve Wozniak.

Antonov told the BBC that he wanted to mark the achievements of Jobs and the company he started by showing how Apple's first products, the computing equivalent of hand axes, gradually evolved to become the ubiquitous iPhones of today.

Antonov's collection includes a computer designed for astronauts, early laptops, rare gaming gadgets from the '90s and all manner of disk drives. The museum will no doubt be perfect for anyone with iMac nostalgia. In the meantime, Apple fans can head to the garage where it all began.
