Indeed. There is btw a very nice collection of european mainframes presented
in a collection at the „Computermuseum“ at the University of Applied Sciences
in Kiel (sorry, webpages in German only):
The collection of mainframes is quite large and they have a good collection of Zuse
machines (although they lack a working Z1 which is presented in Berlin and if you are
lucky is explained by Horst Zuse, the son of Konrad Zuse).

If you ever happen to be in northern Germany and want to give it a try let me know
and I’ll make sure you get a tour in english :-)

Best regards
