Indianapolis Children’s Museum Removed Michael Jackson Items After ‘Leaving Neverland’

Updated On 17 Mar, 2019 Published On

Two Michael Jackson items were removed from display by the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis following allegations of child sex abuse the 'Leaving Neverland' documentary.

The children's museum located two hours away from the hometown of the Jackson family, Gary, Indiana.

One of the late singer and dancer's iconic gloves and fedoras, which has now been removed, were purchased at auction in 2017.

An autographed Michael Jackson poster was also on display at the museum. But it was brought down earlier this month after curators decided to remove them following the Leaving Neverland premiere.

Chris Carron, the museum’s director of collections, told the Indianapolis Star,

When we put together exhibitions, we look at the objects and their association with high-profile people. Obviously, we want to put stories in front of our visitors (showing) people of high character.

He added,

When you learn new stories or you look at something historical in a different way, then sometimes we re-evaluate whether that’s appropriate to be (on display).

Michael visited the children's museum in 1990 and around the same time, he had befriended a teenager, Ryan White, who was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS following a blood transfusion. The legendary singer had attended the funeral when he died.

Michael's items were removed from the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis nearly five days after his statue was brought down from the National Football Museum of Britain as the result of the sexual allegations made against him.
