Settled in the actor's hometown where he attended high school, the exhibit displays memorabilia such as clothing worn by Dean in his three major films, school papers, paintings, original movie posters, and magazines from all over the world.

In addition, the museum also has a theater with screenings of Dean's films and documentaries, as well as a research library.
