"David Bowie Is" celebrates the late musician's legacy from the clothes he wore to the music he wrote.
The touring exhibit, currently in its final stop at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, features more than 400 objects from the David Bowie Archive, including the artist's original costumes, handwritten lyric sheets and performance clips.
Guests can check out 60-plus custom-made costumes Bowie wore while performing on stage from his Ziggy Stardust era to the Aladdin Sane era and all the way up to the suited superstar of the 80s.
Every area of the exhibit is accompanied by a unique soundtrack with more than 40 videos playing throughout.
There are 85 handwritten lyric sheets, including those from “Fame” and “Fashion”; drawings, including a sketch for the Young Americans album cover; and oil paintings, including two of musician Iggy Pop, all by Bowie.
The Victoria and Albert Museum in London organized the "David Bowie is" exhibit and it runs through July 15.
