Elvis Is Alive Museum Is... Dead

Posted By on Fri, Nov 2, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The 81-year-old owner of the Elvis Is Alive Museum in Wright City, Missouri, has announced he is closing his doors and selling his collection on eBay. The rather eclectic items in the museum -- opened 17 years ago in a former laundromat -- include such oddities as replicas of the King’s casket and grave marker.

Some of the items may be hard to find homes for. Museum owner Bill Beeny is especially proud of the 16-foot fiberglass statue of Elvis that stands outside the entrance, which he is pretty certain is "the tallest Elvis statue in Wright City."

And then there are the tissue samples on display that Beeny supposedly obtained from Presley’s "cadaver." Yikes!
