The world’s biggest Apple museum — featuring around 10,000 Apple and Apple-related artefacts — is set to open its new permanent home in Savona, Italy, following 13 years of moving from location to location.

The new, improved All About Apple Museum will be opened to the public on November 28, giving visitors the opportunity to check out its impressive collection, which dates all the way back to Apple’s earliest days in the 1970s.

Among the items on display at the museum are upwards of 1,000 computers, more than 200 monitors, and around 150 printers — with all of them in working order, and available to use by visitors.

If you’re interested, there’s a great photo gallery over at ZDNet, while you can also visit the official website of the museum (in English) here. While the Italian location may make it tricky to reach for many Cult of Mac readers, this is definitely one to add to your itinerary for the next European vacation.

And doesn’t it make you hope that one day Apple gets its act together and opens a similar official museum of its own? Hey, it’s not like they don’t have the perfect space for it these days!
