A museum? Simplest is to download it & burn it to disc.

An official image is available but you need to make the CD yourself.

Behodar - that link says not for use on single computer - they say use the update facility on the computer for a one off. The computer in question has no internet.

Might be easier to give it to your friend on a UFD if you don't have a CD writer
