    National Museum of African History and Culture - Washington DC

    I will be going to Washington, DC on February 1 to spend the day at the museum.

    Have any other members been to the museum? What I am curious about is there any exhibit or display of Motown items in the museum? It appears that the museum is huge and I don't want to miss it.

    Thanks.

    I believe Mary Wilson has loaned them items from her personal collection.

    Do you mean the National Museum of African-American History and Culture? If so, Motown is heavily represented.

    Hereís a nice overview: Diana has her own exhibition featuring a LSTB costume designed by Bob Mackie. She is also featured in the Black Hollywood exhibit. The Jackson 5 have an exhibit as well. I havenít been in person but I imagine there is a healthy dose of Motown on display.

    Yeah from what I saw (from online, not in actual visits), Motown is heavily featured, mainly Supremes/Diana, Marvin, J5, etc.
