An exhibit dedicated to Justin Bieber opens this weekend at the Stratford Perth Museum in the Canadian pop star's hometown of Stratford, Ontario.
The exhibit, titled “Justin Bieber Exhibit -- Steps to Stardom”, features an assortment of memorabilia from running shoes and stage outfits, to a personal letter from former First Lady Michelle Obama, and the jacket he wore when he played junior hockey for the Stratford Warriors.
The 23-year-old pop star, who was discovered after posting videos on YouTube of him busking on the steps of the local Avon Theatre a decade ago, won't be in attendance for the opening.
John Kastner, general manager of the Stratford Perth Museum, told Billboard that he has received emails and calls about the exhibit from Spain, Japan, Italy, all over Canada and the United States, as well as from a tour company in South Korea.
“Steps to Stardom” contains 60 items provided by Bieber and his relatives, as well as other Stratford residents and fans, but will be constantly refreshed from the museum's access to 125 Bieber pieces.
The exhibit runs until December 31 -- but there could be an extension.
