National Museum of American History
The costume worn by George Clooney in the film Batman and Robin (bottom C) and Halle Berry’s costume (L) from the 2004 film Catwoman are seen during a ceremony at the National Museum of American History as Warner Bros. donates memorabilia to the museum on March 8, 2013. More than 30 objects from 13 Warner Bros. films spanning 1942 to 2005 will be added to the National Museum of American History’s entertainment collections, including props from the 2005 film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and a selection of stop-action puppets used by director Tim Burton for the 2005 film Corpse Bride.
At the National Museum of American History we seek to tell a inclusive American story. Films are an integral part of this culture and of our daily lives, shaping how we perceive ourselves as Americans. The legacy of Warner Bros. is an important part of American history and these objects help us to tell that story
We are delighted to partner with the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to bring such a fascinating and rare item from our nation's past to the History Colorado Center to share with the public ... Given the specialized light, temperature and humidity controls required, this is a prime example of the capabilities the new History Colorado Center provides when objects of such importance are put in our trust.More quotes »
