My .02
Spent my life dealing with the public on a face to face basis since I was about 7.
Acronyms are great, but don't necessarily convey any information to Infoage visitors.
While I haven't been around Infoage for long, every visitor I've spoken to didn't understand what the "MARCH" museum was when asked if they had been there but instantly understood what it was when asked "have you been to the vintage computer museum?"

The name should immediately and as clearly as possible convey what it is to the customer/visitor if at all possible.
Vintage computer federation museum or vintage computer museum or equivalent.

Or, the F.A.R.T. Museum :-)
