Reading Museum Presents Celebrity

Reading Museum presents the exhibition Celebrity, open through 09 Jan 2011.

Up close and personal – a touring exhibition of belongings from the world of showbiz including Marilyn Monroe’s dress, Fred Astaire’s shoes, Cher’s necklace, Chuck Berry’s guitar and much more.

Younger visitors might prefer the Austin Powers props, including the flaming orange shirt and the groovy baby go-go hat. Batman’s beautifully engineered spear gun and the Star Wars memorabilia are sure to fire their imagination. But visitors of all ages will instantly recognise props which have appeared in some of the most famous movies, from Titanic to The Addams Family.
