Conspiracy Museum Evicted for Sub Shop
The Conspiracy Museum, a fixture in Dallas, Texas, since it opened in 1993, is being booted by its landlord on December 30. The downtown location on S. Market Street will become a Quizno's sub shop.
Tom Bowden, the Conspiracy Museum's president, said he plans to reopen it on April 4, 2007, in a new location even closer to Dealey Plaza, which is where JFK was assassinated. The current Museum is only three blocks away, so the boxing and moving of all of the supersecret displays will not be too difficult.
Bowden says that the new Conspiracy Museum will be twice the size of the old Museum, which will enable it to add a much-delayed exhibit on the conspiracies surrounding 9/11. He notes that the April 4 opening date is significant, as it will mark the 39th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr, which is yet another part of the conspiracy.
Those who cannot get to Dallas by December 30, and who cannot wait until April 4 to visit a conspiracy attraction, can visit the Jesse James Did Not Die! Museum in Stanton, Missouri, the Area 51 Museum in Roswell, New Mexico, the One And Only Presidential Museum in Hartsgrove, Ohio, or Skunk Ape Research Headquarters in Ochopee, Florida.[12/08/2006]
