Ronnie James Dio Museum “In The Works”

During a recent interview with Radio Forrest, Ronnie James Dio’s widow Wendy Dio revealed that she is hoping to open a museum dedicated to her late husband. She says the exhibit is currently “in the works.”

Wendy said the following:

“I have a lot of stuff that I’ve kept back for a museum. We’re working on a museum right now. We’re hoping to open a museum on Sunset Boulevard [in Los Angeles]. That’s in the works.”

She continued when it was mentioned that Ronnie’s estate had an auction in 2018:

“I had a storage locker full of stuff — it was years and years and years of his stuff there — and I was, like, suddenly, ‘What if I pass away? People will just chuck this stuff out. Let’s just put it up for auction, sell it’ and get the fans or whoever wanted it… Some people bought things. I don’t know where it went. A lot of it went to different museums in different countries. But, obviously, I still have [a lot of stuff]. I would never part with the original artwork of [DIO’s] ‘Holy Diver’ [album]; I have that hanging in my office. And a lot of the gold records I wouldn’t part with. And then some of the awards he got and things, some of his stage clothes — those are things I kept. And obviously we’ll put them in a museum one day.”
