It was interesting to see the small house and know that a mega superstar like Michael Jackson comes from such humble beginnings. But, you probably need to be a pretty big MJ fan to feel like it's a worthwhile stop. I was passing through the area, and it's very close to the interstate, so am glad I did it. But, it would be hard to recommend that someone come from far away only to visit it. All you can do it see it - you can't go in. And, as other posts have said, this isn't the nicest part of Gary, IN, so I could see a few people not feeling comfortable in the neighborhood.
