There was news that the museum dedicated to steam-powered rocket enthusiast Evel Knievel, currently located someplace, is going to move to Las Vegas, however someone may have jumped the gun and the news may be "a bit premature."
I AM ON THE EDGE OF MY SEAT.
Developer J Dapper said Monday that it is teaming with landlord Jonathan Kermani to bring the museum, currently in Topeka, Kansas, to the Las Vegas Arts District at 1001 S. 1st St.
A restaurant is also planned for the museum campus.
But museum co-founder Mike Patterson called the reports of the move "a bit premature" in a statement Tuesday.
"The deal is not completely done; however, we look forward to the possibilities of what could happen," Patterson said. "This museum deserves to be in a tourism destination, and we don't think anyone would question that Las Vegas makes the most sense for the Evel Knievel Museum to be there with Evel's history in Vegas."
I hope the museum offers a huge section on EK's toys.
