Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men, featuring more than 25 iconic costumes, large-scale sets and hundreds of props, video clips, and personal notes and research material from series creator, writer, director and executive producer, Matthew Weiner, will offer unique insight into Mad Men’s origins, and how its exceptional storytelling and remarkable attention to period detail resulted in a vivid portrait of an era and the characters who lived through it. Among the featured behind-the-scenes material will be the writers’ room where Weiner and his team crafted stories and scripts, and original interviews with Weiner about his creative process. The Museum’s exhibition marks the first time objects relating to the production of Mad Men will be shown in public on this scale.
