Pelé's birthplace to become a museum?

Sometimes the news of new house museums--especially those devoted to the childhood of a popular figure stand out in the news. According to a recent article, the 60 year-old soccer star Edson Arantes do Nascimento's, aka Pelé, birthplace is to be rebuilt in Brazil in time for his 70th birthday. It's rare that a public figure's birthplace is preserved or reconstructed during his or her lifetime.
