Lake Geneva. Yes, it's sentimental. Also, a D&D museum is going to attract a fairly select group. Gamers. Short of dropping it into the lobby of a major airport its not going to attract a lot of stray visitors. A pilgimage to Lake Geneva sounds like a Geek road trip to me. I'd take it.

While I live in Washington State and would love to have this nearby, that would not be the right thing to do.
This museum (if one is built), belongs in Lake Geneva. The birthplace of D&D and home of Gary Gygax. People will make the trip to visit it. Just because GEN CON is in Indy doesn't mean it always will be.
Building something like this in Lake Geneva is the right thing to do.
Let me know when it has been built, my family will find a way to make the trip.

The Museum of D&D should be right here:
And it looks like the place has already been fixed up!

Lake Geneva doesn't make sense to me: No infrastructure, no population, no current presence by the producers of the game, and it's not the ultimate origin point of the game.

Lake Geneva, for many of the same reasons people have already listed. But I'm biased because that puts it less than a half hour away from me.

I voted Lake Geneva for the sentimental reasons.
I am not a big fan of putting it in Indianapolis. I mean, for everyone who cannot go there to see GenCon, they sure as heck are not going to go there to see the D&D Museum. When sentimentality is not involved, might it not be better to spread out the D&D love a bit?
Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him
And makes me poor indeed.
