As you should know by now, Justin Bieber is a proud Canadian, born out of the small town of Stratford, Ontario. Bieber's Stratford roots have made the town a tourist spot for major Beliebers to visit some of the stars stomping grounds - from his high-school and hockey rink to favourite ice-cream shops. The city of Stratford even released a 'Bieber-iffic Map' with 24-Biebs approved stops for superfans to visit.
The Stratford Perth's Museum has been curating a collection of Bieber merchandise ever since hunting down the drum-kit Justin first used as a boy. Funds for the drum-kit were raised by fellow Stratford citizens leading to a newspaper story of young Justin and his new instrument.
Bieber's grandparents greatly contributed to the exhibit, not only by donating awards, old jerseys and famous sneakers, but by relaying the information to Justin's team, who then gave the museum permission to move forward.
The exhibit will be called "Steps to Stardom" as an homage to Bieber's busking days where he sat on the steps to Stratford's Avon Theatre. The exhibit will contain items that pre-dated Justin's world-wide fame as well as items from highlights in his career. Some objects fans can look forward to seeing in the exhibit are his Grammy Award, microphones he's used, his Stratford Warriors hockey jacket, and personal letters, including one from Michelle Obama, CP24 reports.
The showcase will open at the Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario on February 18th. I truly beliebe it'll be a smash hit for years to come.
