If you are a fashion lover, and find yourself near Greenville (South Carolina) you should definitely make the Katherine Hepburn exhibit at the Upcountry History Museum part of your itinerary. We’d seen a billboard for the exhibit during a day trip back in early October (before the exhibition opened.) But it wasn’t until our recent mini break where we spent quite a lot of time in Greenville, that we realized that the museum was in Greenville itself.
The Upcountry History Museum is located in the Heritage Green along with the library, Greenville Theater and Children’s Museum and being the fashion lovers that we are, we were looking forward to seeing some of the costumes that Katherine wore during her film career which spanned more than 60 years. (Also did I ever mention that visiting museums is an excellent way to spend a cloudy day.)
The main part of the exhibition is located on the 1st floor, and continues in a smaller room on the second level of the museum. Another exhibit currently on display that might interest you is ‘The World of Jan Brett’ which shares cover and a children’s playroom inspired by Author and Illustrator Jan Brett.
Photos and movie posters from Hepburn’s films, sketches like the one above were displayed around the exhibit as well as photos of her with long time love Spenser Tracy who starred 9 movies together.
