Gary, Indiana is moving forward with plans to build a museum dedicated to native son Michael Jackson and his family. Despite funding issues, the Jackson Museum Performing Arts Center is growing — at least on paper.
Developers now want to add an amusement park designed to look like Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and a golf course to a city owned 10-acre plot of land where the museum is supposed to go, according to the Northwest Indiana Times.
The idea for the center has been batted around ever since the MJ died on June 25, but its never been clear the project would come to fruition. From the start, funding issues besieged the MJ Museum project, which had an estimated price tag of up to $30 million before the amusement park and golf course were added to plans.
