You guys did an excellent job with the museum, Would they have to have an employee to monitor? The old Franklin gift shop between the fountain and Old Country is still vacant right? It would be perfect there. You guys totally deserve a permanent musuem.

In my recent visit to Casino Pier I noticed they had a history museum dating back to the 20s. They even have part of the Jet star (AKA The roller coaster that fell in the water) in there. It was pretty cool.

For Fright Fest, they use that building for the Clown maze. However, it would be interesting if an old Old Country building could be re purposed for a museum.

It would be real cool if they could turn the "museum" into a ride, but I know they would never invest that kind of money into something like that. The Hershey Chocolate World ride is a destination in itself, especially when the park is off season. They subsequently added a 4D show, restaurants, shops and a huge candy store. Lots of major money makers there....

Suffice it to say that the "museum" would have to be inside to be able to show old videos on monitors? It would be a great place to cool off in the summer, or dry off in inclement weather. Certainly could combine it with a shop that sells memorabilia, which I think would be a good money-maker.

Here's a video of the "enhanced" Hershey Chocolate World tour ride. It's a little disappointing because 90% of is the same as what I remember. They added some optics and character graphics, but it's not what I thought it would be. It needed a lot more updating that that.

How about add museum-type display stations along the path by the lakeside, creating a walking tour of sorts? Kind of like the displays they have on some nature trails that explain the fauna and flora, except these displays could house artifacts from the park's past in weather-tight glass-enclosed cabinets? It shouldn't cost a ton of money to create this, and it would give people something else to do between rides and attractions. The lakeside area right now is a total waste of space.
