This exciting exhibition gives people the chance to get close and personal with some of their favorite actors and actresses from the golden age of Hollywood films. With over 50 costumes and personal effects, many of the greatest stars are at the Ellen Noël including Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Doris Day, Tallulah Bankhead, Greta Garbo, Judy Garland, Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly, John Wayne, Tyrone Power, Elizabeth Taylor, and even Marilyn Monroe.

Since the era of silent films, costumes have served as a critical element of the story telling process. While the purpose of costuming has remained the same over the past century, the process by which costumes are created for a film had changed significantly and now a hundred years later, has come full circle. These costumes are one tool that the film maker has to tell the story.

Help bring the Hollywood Stars to the Museum!
We are giving everyone in the community a chance sponsor their favorite Hollywood costume. For your donation of $500, a sign with your name or logo will be displayed next to that costume. Costumes can be sponsored by individuals, several people, organizations, companies or in remembrance. There are 40 costume sponsor opportunities, check below for a list of costumes and email Aggie Acosta at for availability.
