MacPaw, a software development company with over 30 million users worldwide, announces the new Apple Museum will open shorty.
The exhibition will share 323 rare Apple products as part of the history of this leading technology company. There will be a museum and regular lectures and workshops. It will open its doors to a wider audience shortly in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The museum has been curated with a collection acquired from Tekserve in New York and a unique collection of Apple products from a private collector in Poland.
“It is no wonder that Apple inspired millions of people with its unique approach to the product design that has always been trendsetting. Thanks to Apple’s great minds, now we have indispensable tech products that feed our eyes every second. Some of them are just like art pieces, and we’re very glad to have this opportunity to share these iconic items with other fans.” said Oleksandr Kosovan, CEO and founder of MacPaw. “When we acquired our first Mac collection, we couldn’t make it accessible to the public, while the requests for the office exhibition tours were increasing all the time. We were working hard to make this idea come true and now we are ready to announce that the museum will be open publicly soon.”

The collection includes some special pieces, to name just a few:
- Macintosh 128k, signed by Steve Wozniak
- The Mac Portable, Apple’s first “portable” computer that weighs 15.75 pounds. This Mac has signatures of the whole team who was working on it back then
- Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh that cost $7,499 when it was announced. TAMs were delivered to customers in a limo by Apple staff in black tie dress code, who would help with its installation
- iBook Clamshell, it was the first computer to have an AirPort networking card which was first to deliver cable-free internet access to the masses.
MacPaw Space will host meetups, lectures, workshops, and more, while the new museum will be just a part of it. It will be a 100% cashless and equipped with a contactless payment system. The tickets will be sold online.
