    I think the closest thing is the EMP in Seattle. I went there just after it opened...haven't been back for a while so I don't know how it compares now.

    Its now called Museum of Popular Culture. So the musuem has dropped its naming ties to Jimi. However, there is still a large Jimi section in it and many other cool things as well.

    The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Museum has some great Jimi stuff, or at least it did when I went there in 1998(I know, that was literally 20 years ago now lol). They had the original "Purple Haze-Jesus Saves" lyric page, a stage used 1968 Fender Stratocaster(Sunburst, I believe), and the Isle of Fehmarn jacket. I don't remember seeing the pants he wore there.

    If we're talking about museums that already exist, I'd say the Handel and Hendrix House in London is well worth visiting. Their display includes clothing and Hendrix's record collection.

    If we're talking about museums which should exist, I would again say London would be the best location, because that was his launchpad into global success.

    It's been fifteen or twenty years since I've visited the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. I've visited the Museum of Pop this Summer. If memory serves, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame back then, equals or surpasses the Museum of Pop now. They each just have one small wing devoted to Jimi. I remember when the EMP had much much more.
