The other day to my dismay I found out that the NBC Universal Experience archive exhibit at Universal Studios Hollywood would be closing on September 1, 2015. The costume, props and memorabilia museum attraction has been open since 2008 and I first visited the ever-changing exhibition in April 2009 and have returned frequently since, so I'm sad to see the space close.
If you're a fan of the film and like these outfits, be sure to also check out these other costumes and props from Mamma Mia: The Movie that I've spied on my travels.
If you're a fan of the movie, be sure to enjoy all these other props, prosthetics and models from How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Someone who worked in the archives once told me that they had so many amazing costumes they were never able to show because they came from less successful movies and TV shows, even though the costume designs were works of art.
If you're a fan of the films, be sure to check out all these other original costumes, vehicles and props from The Mummy movies on display.
Be sure to take a look at these other costumes and makeup prosthetics from The Wolfman that featured in the exhibit attraction over the years.
If you're a fan too, you should also check out these other Battlestar Galactica costumes and props, plus more treasures from the spin-off prequel series Caprica.
Plus be sure to also check out more original Gladiator movie costumes that have graced these display cabinets in recent times.
I'm sure visitor figures contributed to the attraction's demise, space is at a premium at Universal Studios Hollywood, but does the theme park really need another rollercoaster or simulator ride, when it already had something truly unique that celebrated the studios history.
Be sure to stay tuned for more hidden cinematic and televisual treasures in the spotlight, now that the vaults have been closed and all the items returned to the archives to collect dust (at least I won't need to buy an annual pass anymore).
Plus search the Universal Studios Hollywood tab for even more amazing wardrobe pieces, models, maquettes, animatronics, props and memorabilia that I've managed to capture and share.
