The exhibition needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Betty’s kitchen and Don’s office have been recreated with painstaking detail. The cigarettes and ash trays are omnipresent, just as on the show. There are sections dedicated to some of the most popular characters with many personal objects. Don’s driver’s license and purple heart, Betty’s cookbooks and party wear, Meghan’s provocative dresses and much more are on display at the exhibition. If you’re a fan of everything Mad Men, this is your Mecca until mid-June. Don’t miss it!
