Default Avatar Museum?

Would it not be nice with an Avatar museum? There they could have life size statues of Neytiri and other characters, they could have props from the movie, they could have books, posters and many other things. Also they could have a theater where you could see the movie (in 3D).
Also it could be nice with meeting and conferences taking place there.

Maybe it could be modelled a bit from the Science Fiction museum in Seattle where they have alot of SF related objects but they also arrange film festivals and similar.

Perhaps an Avatar museum could arrange a film festival on the theme "movies that inspired Avatar."

Homepage of the SF museum in Seattle:

Their film festival:

Well, I do like the idea of a theater that's permanently playing the movie in 3D. I'm probably going to miss being able to see it on the big screen, where it is/was meant to be seen.

I think if you have such a place you could also devote a bit of it for educational purposes, i.e. informing about how people can help stop environmental damage, the threats that indigenous populations throughout the world face, etc.

I dont really think there's enough there to establish a permanent museum. However, a roaming exhibit would be doable.

It would be cool. I doubt the demand would be high enough for it though. Maybe after the trilogy is completed, they set up something temporary that shows all 3 movies and have stuff from all 3. Now that would be cool.

Yep, I agree with all the above!

Once upon a time they had a exhibition about Star Wars at the Smithsonian:

Quote:
From the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum, Star Wars: The Magic of Myth explored the mythical message of Luke Skywalker's journey from his first call to adventure to his final victory. Showcasing models, costumes, props, and original artwork from the archives of Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition traced the Star Wars films-Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983), and Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace-and how it presents the young Luke and other characters as archetypes from stories and legends.

Interpretive panels throughout the exhibition pointed out the mythological and literary elements that made Star Wars a newly cast epic. Drawing on the work of Joseph Campbell in his series The Power of Myth, the exhibition text identifies the classic characters of young hero, faithful companions, damsel in distress, wise guide, and others that enliven the saga.

Maybe once the story arc is complete a small exhibit could be set up at the Smithsonian. Set one of the IMAX screens aside to show the film(s) and put a bunch of the props on display. They could also tie in the importance of environmental conservation along the exhibit. Most likely would never happen, but if done right, it could easily draw a crowd.

*MASSIVE NECROPOST*

...but I've been going through a lot of old threads, and I just had to grin when I read the OP here (because quite a bit of it came true).
