Grandmaster of Flowers (Lvl 18)
Voted "other", I think a good case could be made for Milwaukee. It's relatively close to Lake Geneva, was the home of GenCon for about half an age, and is also close to Chicago and relatively central in the continent.
Indianapolis is valid as long as GenCon stays there (it's locked in through 2020) and even more so if any other major gaming cons ever wind up there, but if GenCon ever leaves Indy* it becomes kinda pointless.
If you were going to put it in the Seattle area you wouldn't put it in Renton; you'd put it in the U-district northeast of downtown where gamers are actually likely to go. But Seattle is a long way from most people (though close to me), a problem it shares with Orlando.
* - if GenCon was to leave Indianapolis, where - realistically - could it go? There's not many cities can handle something that big as easily as Indy does.

Putting it in Lake Geneva significantly decreases the impact of the museum. Put it where it will be visited and seen by the masses, not just the committed few.
I am baffled anyone would want it in Lake Geneva, other than for sentimental reasons.

I voted Lake Geneva because it's to D&D what Memphis is to blues music. It is where the hobby was born and a museum would make it a destination for geek pilgrims who wouldn't otherwise visit Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Indianapolis could work too, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Lake Geneva. Can't stand Florida, esp not their Mouse-land. Lake Geneva needs the tourist $ more. Sure, winter might be a bit harsh, but think of the gaming session possibilities.

How long is the drive from Chicago to Lake Geneva?

I would love to visit an Edition Wars Wing, as well as seeing the Grognard exhibit.

Also, those decisions were made decades ago, and a lot has changed in the world since then.
Museums have a purpose, and that purpose is to share and spread knowledge. Putting them in small communities far from major metro areas does not do that.
Just because we used to do things a certain way does not mean we should keep doing that.
