Neverland Ranch the museum? Neverland Ranch as a museum could become for Michael Jackson what Graceland is for Elvis.
A museum, a Jackson burial, all the belongings on display is among the topics being discussed Sunday, less that days after Michael Jackson’s death Thursday.
But turning Neverland Ranch into a museum is not as easy as thought. The proposal according to reports comes from Dr Tohme Tohme identified now as “Jackson’s former manager”. Billboard / Hollywood Reporter claim the following concept in the works within days after Jackson’s passing:
“Tohme works with Colony Capital LLC, the firm that holds the mortgage note on Neverland. Their idea is to turn Neverland into Graceland, with Jackson’s grave the central attraction.”
However the report notes that Graceland conversion of Neverland was attempted before with locals and denied. The home is currently in disarray, is located in a two-lane country road reportedly “not equipped” for massive traffic.
And how about the original contents of Neverland?
Those as covered previously on LALATE were the subject of a major suit between auctioneer Darren Julien. Julien had claimed he had been given the right to sell the contents. Jackson’s camp sued. The matter was reportedly then settled with Jackson camp getting back the contents around the time that Jackson’s 02 Concert was confirmed.
