There is no official cash register museum.
National cash register was located in Dayton, Ohio. National had what they called "The Archives". It was only opened to NCR employees & a few visitors over the years. Most of the stuff that they had was boxed up & you couldn't see it even if you were fortunate to get in.
After NCR down sized about 20 years back, they loaned the whole archives to The Dayton Historical Society. They rented a huge 5 story building in Dayton to store these items. They then sorted & cataloged everything (this is still going on). They have a section that is open to the public one day a week.
In Dayton there is Carillon Park. It has a museum quality town open to the public all year. (there is a fee to enter) The Dayton Historical society teamed up with them and loaned many cash register which are displayed in the entrance building plus almost every building in the park has a period cash register in it.
