The Collection


The Marilyn Monroe Collection comprises a lifetime of memories, both Marilyn’s and the collector’s.  While there are other collections of Monroe memorabilia, this compilation is unique in that  items within the collection represent significant aspects of Marilyn’s life, including items from her childhood, the very first fur she ever owned, and even her maternity dress from her final pregnancy in 1958.  Today, along with books, magazines, posters and postcards, the collection consists of hundreds of items formerly owned by the legend herself, many of which are photographed with Marilyn. The collection includes clothing, accessories and furs from her personal wardrobe, cosmetics, books from her home library, numerous personal and professional documents, bank statements, financial documents, signed bank checks, and many other personal items outlining in great detail the personal and very private life of Marilyn Monroe.
