The GRAMMY Museum, in cooperation with the Estate of George Harrison, presents a major new exhibition, “George Harrison: Living in the Material World.” The exhibition opened the week following the broadcast premiere of Martin Scorsese’s documentary of the same name, showing on HBO, and is the first major museum exhibition to explore the extraordinary life and career of 12-time GRAMMY Award® winner George Harrison.

  • Stage costumes and outfits worn by Harrison, including the suit he wore during the concert for Bangladesh
  • Multiple instruments
  • Original passport
