Justin Bieber museum exhibit to open in Stratford, Ont.


A museum exhibit featuring mementoes from Justin Bieber’s life is set to open next month in his hometown of Stratford, Ont.

“Steps to Stardom” will open at the Stratford Perth Museum on Feb. 18.

The museum’s general manager, John Kastner, says organizers worked with Bieber’s grandparents, Diane and Bruce Dale, to curate a selection of items to be featured.

The singer’s Grammy Award, microphones, a hockey bag, backstage passes, a personal letter from Michelle Obama, and a peewee hockey jacket inscribed with the nickname “Biebs” are among the items set for display.

The majority of the items are part of Bieber’s grandparents’ personal collection.

It will be one of the largest collections at the museum, with 50 to 75 pieces on display.

Kastner says Bieber gave his approval of the the exhibit via text message. Just over one month ago, Kastner ran into the superstar at a local Tim Hortons and thanked him for all of the donated items.

Kastner says Bieber was extremely kind and appreciative that the museum was going an exhibit.

The exhibit will run for about two years.

A nice idea by the town, but the Biebs has changed too much (for the worse) from his humble beginnings.
