Michael Jackson Museum Plans Announced in Singer’s Hometown

Thursday, June 3, 2010

Michael Jackson’s hometown is moving ahead with plans for a museum and arts centre dedicated to its famous resident.

Mayor Rudy Clay says the Jackson Family Museum and Hotel and the Michael Jackson Performing Arts and Cultural Center and Theaters in Gary, Indiana, will cost about $300 million.

The mayor says the money will come from investors and donations but the city is donating 120 hectares of land for the project.
Michael Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, attended a Wednesday news conference in Gary. He says he’s carrying on his son’s legacy by making sure the project comes to fruition.

Michael Jackson was last in Gary in 2003 to talk about the project but nothing had happened since then.
