I used to love this Star Trek Museum and its various parts. Outdoors scenes with Starships visible, could enter, walk around in them.. gone now, anyone know the story?

Below is the information from their last notecard I have:

WHALE WATCHING AND SCUBA DIVING
􀀔
This is the home of George and Gracie, the Humpback Whales saved from the 20th Century by Admiral James T. Kirk in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home".  Learn about RL whale conservation while listening to your favorite Star Trek movie and TV themes at the Whale Observation Pier.

􀀞
"Ripper" was the nickname given  to a large animal discovered aboard the disabled USS Glenn in 2256, by a USS Discovery away team. He was dubbed a tardigrade due to his resemblance to the Earth micro-animal. According to a captain's log from the Glenn, Ripper was found stowing away in the ship's stores of mycelium spores.  Our Chief Engineer, Tsora Enoch, has recreated the original cargo bay, and if you click on our tardigrade you will find a surprise.

􀀝
A recreation of Mr. Spock mind-melding with one of the whales at the Cetacean Institute. As Dr. Gillian Taylor explains, nobody knows what the whales are saying with their songs..."Maybe he's singing to that man" one visitor exclaims. You can see the youtube clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoS1eAVNXWU

FLY YOUR OWN SHUTTLECRAFT - 2 LOCATIONS

􀀆
After the destruction of their home world, a small group of Vulcans relocated to New Eridani (named for the star Epsilon Eridani or the star 40 Eridani, around which Vulcan is said to have orbited). The town and nearby residential areas provide a home for Vulcans and other species to live in logic and harmony, while providing an opportunity to educate visitors about Vulcan society and culture.  Visit the Vulcan Museum and Library.

Like Arduenn's examples show, the owner always had quite a reputation of extremely low tolerance towards their visitors' behaviour. Perhaps Karma got them in the end.

Anyway, you know that there are numerous places dedicated to Star Trek, among even more SciFi themed places? A lot are roleplay related with quite some stunning sets.

I remember the museum well. It was beautifully and accurately put together and an excellent source of information. So sad when it disappeared. I have several pics as a reminder of my last visit including one of me posing with Wabisabi Matahari who happened to be there at the time. This one is of the Holodeck recreating the bridge on a Borg ship:

That's most likely what happened here.  Unless you're listed in "Destinations", are a music/dance place with a good crowd, or hookers... you're probably not even making enough to cover half your tier anymore.
