The Hollywood Museum reopened this week on August 4, 2021. The first ever Back to the Future Trilogy exhibit is waiting for YOU! 

At the opening ceremonies, Donelle Dadigan presented a check to the Michael J. Fox Foundation and there were special messages from both Michael J. Fox and Bob Gale. You can watch both in my video above!
