Through the summer until September, The Hollywood Museum is celebrating our favorite blonde, Marilyn Monroe. The Exhibit, titled Hollywood Legend is the nation’s largest exhibit of authentic memorabilia presenting an intimate look at her life and legacy.
If alive, Marilyn would be 87 years old and her legendary image still lives on as superstar and ultimate icon of glamour and beauty. The scope of the exhibition encompasses Marilyn Monroe’s costumes, jewellery, furs and accessories from her films; publicity gowns and personal wardrobe; her 1961 Fleetwood Cadillac limousine given as a gift from Darryl Zanuck; original Marilyn Monroe artwork, photographs and documents from her private files; furniture from her final home in Brentwood; and many of Marilyn’s personally owned artifacts.
“Marilyn Monroe: The Exhibit” displays the million-dollar dress Marilyn wore on her honeymoon with Joe DiMaggio. One of the highlights of The Hollywood Museum’s permanent collection, this dress was made famous when she entertained the troops during USO shows in Korea in 1954.
The Hollywood Museum, in the Historic Max Factor Building, is located at 1660 N. Highland Ave. in the heart of Hollywood.
