Marilyn Monroe in Bath
So I’ve just returned from a girls weekend in Bath, the main aim of which was to see the Marilyn Monroe exhibition at the American Museum just on the outskirts of Bath.
Understandably, but nevertheless frustratingly, there was a photography ban within the exhibition so, this is as close as I could get with a camera. But if you can get to Bath before the end of the month- then go!
It was so moving to actually see dresses she had actually worn and objects she’d kept with her throughout her life, for example this talisman (image care of Somerset Life) which she was given as a child and she believed it represented her becoming a star.
I ended up getting a bit emotional at the end of the exhibition, I probably looked like a right weirdo, crying and sniffling into my hankie!
