The original plan was to open a museum in New York, where the foundation was originally formed, with other possible sites in Philadelphia, Memphis, Chicago or New Orleans. A delegation from the foundation toured all the potential sites and finally settled on Cleveland as the ideal site. A poll taken by USA Today also showed that the popular choice with the general public was also Cleveland.
