I just spent two weeks in Europe and the only museum I entered was the museum, if you could call it that, of time keeping, in Zurich.

I at least saw the outside of the Louve. That place looks the size of the Pentagon.

I should do a museum of gambling. Anyone want to invest?
UNLV already has a headstart on you, but if you can get Sheldon on board, you may have a winning idea on your hands. You could put it next to the El Cortez.

Sounds like a crowd funding idea.

I always wondered if that place would be worth the trouble. I know I would not waste more than a few minutes on the Mona Lisa as it is just not my style of art. As to the whole thing, to me it gets to be, "Yeah, I know it is all fine and famous paintings, but what else is there to see in the city?"

Sounds like either a roadside attraction or something to put in one of the big casinos, who would tear it out for not generating revenue. Maybe a tribal casino would give a concession?

I would think it should be viewed as items on the wall and around the periphery of a space used for other purposes. So a gambling school would be suitable or a gambling Knick Knacks for sale business or an ante room in a Vegas hotel's conference room area. A place where crowds could be filtered through while waiting for a different event.

It could be more than that, and a lot could really be done. I assume Wiz would not limit this to modern gambling. Go all the way back to the mention of gambling in the Bible. Try and find what kind of dice they used then. Even do a hall of fame where you put 4 people in a year. Can I get a second on the nomination for Frank Rosenthal for the first year class?

It could be big if done right, but needs a deep, deep pocket.

Since the internet, museums are dying.
I can't count how many times on
American Pickers somebody will say
they can't sell their stuff because their
dream is to open an antiques museum.
They still think it's 1954, apparently.

We went to the Titanic exhibit in Vegas
10 years ago. Bored to death, stuff you
could see in any antique mall in any
state. Clothes and glasses and china from
1912, somebody pinch me..

If you're referring to "lots," it is my understanding it more like keno. There were labeled rocks in a bottle and they drew one as a method of randomizing.
