Elon Musk Donates $1 Million To Build A Tesla Museum

I've written previously about the Oatmeal comic about Tesla. If you visit that page, you'd also find out that the creator of the comic (also a Tesla owner) has been trying to get a Tesla Museum built He raised enough money to buy the land where Nikola Tesla's former laboratory stood. Unfortunately, building an actual museum would cost a lot more than just the land (due to a lot of environmental cleanup work that needs to be done to the property), so he still needed to raise more funds - he estimated about $8 million. Elon Musk, who previously donated money to buy the land, has now donated $1 million to build the museum. He has also pledged to install a Superchager on the site. Awesome!
