Elvis-A-Rama Museum Closes

September 28, 2006 | Other
Las Vegas residents only have four days to visit the Elvis-A-Rama Museum. The museum is closing October 1st. It is located west of the Fashion Show Mall on Industrial Road. The museum houses more than $5 million worth of Elvis Presley memorabilia. It's the largest collection of its kind outside of Graceland. Last year, the company CKX, Incorporated, which controls the name, image and likeness of "The King," bought the museum. In its place, the company plans to build a world-class Elvis-themed attraction.

This is a shame. The museum had great pieces. Chris D is a great guy, and I wish him the best.

Don't feel too sorry for him, after all he is the one who decided to sell and he's off to open a new museum in Hawaii. Don't seem too bad a deal to me.

Not a bad deal. At least they didn't try to close the thing down without any negotiation - they could have tried to shut it down with the 'name, image and licence' route, but chose to talk. Perhaps it will be a good move - only time will tell.
