Chippewa Falls museum expanding Cray exhibit

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Chippewa Falls Museum of Industry and Technology is bringing in some heavy equipment.

The museum is expanding its Cray Super Computer exhibit. It’s bringing in more computers, such as C-90, T-90 and a computer called the “Black Widow”. The exhibit has been around for almost 20 years.

Skip August retired from Cray in 2003 and works at the museum. He says just taking part in the exhibit is the best part of the experience.

"Most of the stuff we've actually had for some time, but Cray Inc. has been gracious enough to store it in their warehouse for how many years,” August said. “And since they're doing so well, they wanted a little more warehouse space and we want it in here, so it's kind of a win-win situation."

August says there is more room for the museum to grow and to bring in more computers in the future.
