IBM-PC (DOS and Windows)

Experience the era when home computers first began to take flight into the mainstream and become a part of our daily lives.
On display in our functioning museum we have a restored Packard Bell Intel Pentium-75 from 1995, with a few add-ons including a 750mb ZIP drive and a slot-load 5.25" disk drive (which did not originally come installed in this model.)

Currently running MS-DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11, we've installed the Windows Entertainment Pack(s) as well as a few of our favorite games from Sierra On-Line to demonstrate this machine's place in history (and to have fun with it, too!)

The ImagiNation Network

The World's First Online Social/Games Network

Sierra On-Line was a trailblazer when it came to PC Gaming in the 1990s, and The Sierra Network was no different. It allowed users from all over the country to dial-in to a network and play games in a full graphical environment. Ken Williams, founder and CEO of Sierra regards The Sierra Network as his proudest accompishment.

Later re-named The ImagiNation Network, it was eventually sold to AT&T. As the internet evolved and MMORPG games became more advanced, The ImagiNation Network with its quaint yet adorable graphics and lack of access to the World Wide Web quietly faded away. Until Now.

INN Barn: The Re-Creation of ImagiNation!

INN Barn is the ImagiNation Network 2.4 in all its glory. It has been running since May of 2019 and was created by James "Jim" Leiterman designed to restore some of the functionality of the former banks of DOS servers.

Utilizing the DosBox emulator and a special proxy (links below), you can now experience most of The ImagiNation Network on today's modern day computers via the internet.
