The posthumous dedications to Michael Jackson continue. Despite earlier reported funding issues, the Jackson Museum Performing Arts Center is expected break ground in the superstar’s hometown of Gray, Indiana sometime this year. Plans for the museum have been expanded to include a 300-room hotel, an amusement park similar to MJ’s home, Neverland Ranch, and a golf course.
