Museum of Dance -- Making Room for MJ Tribute

7/24/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson won't just get a plaque when he's inducted into the Hall of Fame at the National Museum of Dance next month ... dude is getting an entire garden -- thanks to a band of passionate fans.

TMZ has learned museum officials have agreed to make space for a permanent garden to honor the late icon -- after an MJ fan group informed employees that an influx of flowers would be headed their way on the day MJ will be enshrined. 

So, instead of just letting the flowers die ... the museum's honchos -- along with a local florist -- decided to construct a permanent garden in MJ's honor on the museum's grounds.

There's a tiny catch -- the MJ fan group is gonna have to foot the bill for the garden -- and the size of the garden will be determined by how much cash they raise.

Maybe the Planters' Corporation should contribute something,cuz there's nothing that brings out the nuts more than a blog on MJ.

There's a National Museum Of Dance? Seriously? Is the photo representative of the their facility? It should also be submitted to this site: http://photoshopdisasters.blogspot.com/

TMZ, the link to contribute to the garden shows only "fatal error." Please fix or advise how we can contribute. Tx

Michael is not alive. As soon as they have an auction or any money making functon that mocks MJ's memory, I hope Michael has the winning bid and everybody jets out like hyper ass hornets for the nearest exit!

now, MYMJJ5, i love to read your posts. every single one of them, especially this one. this one in particular because MJ is doing exactly what you posted. every mysterious bid from an undisclosed person, every major move that has to do with Sony, Coca Cola, South Africa*s World Cup, the auction for John Lennons hand written lyrics to one of his most famous songs, the new and undisclosed owner of Tavern On the Green, (who by the way threw a party there a few years ago)not to mention the countless other moves being made in Hollywood and abroad, I, feel MJ's gloved hands all through it. and as for everyone jetting out like hyper ass hornets...thats nothing new to me, just another MJ media frenzy. only this time, the world is on stage, not HIM. lets look at it, just watch the moves being made. if MJ's not illuminati, i dont know who/what is. this is total control at best!
