Dear David,

that’s really a good idea in Germany there are two institutions that are coming into my mind. 

1. The Computer Games Museum in Berlin: http://www.computerspielemuseum.de/1210_Home.htm The person to contact is Andreas Lange, lange at computerspielemuseum.de
2. The German Museum of Technology is planning to built up a software collection. The person responsible for that is Eva Kudrass, which you find in CC. 

Then there is a private initiative in Munich building up a computer museum with a focus on Software. The website is in German only, feel free to tell me if you need help with a translation: http://www.computermuseum-muenchen.de/software.html I can’t really say if they make it long term.
