For the fans of the hit AMC show Mad Men—or those who just love the 1960s—New York's Museum of the Moving Image has an exhibition featuring props, sets, scripts and more from the hit program.
According to Frazier Moore of the Associated Press, the “Matthew Weiner's Mad Men” exhibit will feature a, “collection of hundreds of props, dozens of costumes, two full-scale sets and scads of notes and scripts from AMC's glorious drama series.”
The excitement surrounding Mad Men is climbing right now due to the series only having seven episodes remaining in the final season. The last several shows begin airing on April 5 and the series concludes forever May 17. Luckily for Mad Men fans, the exhibit ends June 14.
For those who have fallen in love with the show, taking a trip through some of the exact places the characters have stood is a unique experience. Exhibition curator Barbara Miller told Moore that the Museum of the Moving Image was looking to give tourists a fully immersive glimpse into the show and the processes that took place in order to make it such an acclaimed program.
The exhibit features the entire sets for the recognizable office of the show’s main character Don Draper and the kitchen of Draper and his wife Betty. Add in clothing from several main characters and authentic set props with incredible detail that has helped make the show so popular, and this exhibit achieves what Miller was trying to accomplish.
Not only is this exhibit targeted at fans of Mad Men, but it is also appealing to the visitors who lived through and experienced the '60s. It was a wild time in the world, and walking through the scenes of the show will transport people back to a different period.
If you’re in the New York area over the coming months, stop into the Museum of the Moving Image and walk a mile in the shoes of the famous cast.
