Pack your bags Beliebers! Stratford, Ontario’s most famous son is getting his own museum exhibit. “Steps to Stardom,” housed at the Stratford Perth Museum, will feature artifacts and memorabilia from Justin Bieber’s early days as a budding musician to a young popstar to a global superstar. According to The Toronto Star, some of the items featured include hockey jerseys, sneakers, microphones, letters--including one from Michelle Obama--and even his Grammy and a drum set he played as a child (see below). Steps to Stardom opens Feb 19, 2018.
Steps to Stardom--taking its name from the steps of Stratford’s Avon Theatre where the Biebs used to busk--has the blessing of Bieber himself and much of the memorabilia was donated by Justin’s grandparents Diane and Bruce Dale. The exhibit is the brainchild of museum manager John Kastner, who told The Star that the wheels began to turn when he spoke with a local session musician who had lost a photo autographed by Bob Dylan, David Crosby and Jimi Hendrix. “I started to think about Justin Bieber and people like that,” Kastner said. “We can keep things for safekeeping (here)."
