Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at Building 92 TOP GLBT History Museum The GLBT History Museum opened in January in San Francisco, California. A project of the GLBT Historical Society, an archives and research center established in 1985, the new museum is the first of its kind in the U.S. and only the second in the world—the Schwules Museum in Berlin, Germany, being the first. “A quarter century after the founding of the GLBT Historical Society, we’re proud to open a museum to showcase our community’s history,” said Paul Boneberg, executive director of the Historical Society. “At our museum, they’ll discover treasures from our archives that reflect fascinating stories spanning nearly a century of GLBT life. We have gone all out to create a museum as rich, diverse and surprising as the GLBT community itself.” The museum includes 1,600 square feet of gallery and program space and features two debut exhibitions: In the main gallery, “Our Vast Queer Past: Celebrating GLBT History,” and in the front gallery, “Great Collections of the GLBT Historical Society Archives.” The 8,000-square-foot Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at Building 92 (BNYC92) in New York will open in September. Housed in the renovated 1857 Marine Commandant’s Residence with a modern extension, BNYC92 will educate and inform visitors about the significant role the Brooklyn Navy Yard has played, and continues to play, in U.S. history and Brooklyn. It will offer space for classrooms, a café and indoor/outdoor event space. Spots The Computer Museum The Computerspielemuseum (Computer Museum) opened in January in Berlin, Germany. Formerly the location of popular Café Warschau, the museum features more than 7,200 square feet (670 square meters) of gaming and experimental scenery where visitors can experience historical and future developments of computer and video games. 30 one+ 03 / 0 4.11
