The Wick Costume Museum Becomes The Museum Club at The Wick
Gala Grand Opening Features Legendary Broadway Star Christine Andreas
The Wick Costume Museum has undergone a dramatic high-tech transformation, resulting in a stunning new venue, rechristened The Museum Club at The Wick. The completely renovated space will thrill guests with 360-degree immersive video experiences, historic costume displays, dining, and entertainment. The premiere exhibit, entitled Ascot! features the historic original 1956 costumes of My Fair Lady, designed by Sir Cecil Beaton. The Gala Grand Opening is Friday, September 16, 2022, 6:00 PM, and includes an intimate concert by Christine Andreas, who starred on Broadway as Eliza Doolittle. Beginning in October, patrons can experience the exhibit by calling the box office at 561-995-2333.
“Inspired by the Van Gogh exhibition, we embarked on a journey to marry an immersive video experience with our unmatched costume collection,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Executive Managing Producer. “The mission of The Wick Costume Museum has always been to share our historic wardrobe in an entertaining and educational way. With this dramatic new remodel, we are thrilled to welcome fans to enjoy our collection in a glorious new fashion.”

The museum’s first exhibit pays homage to the beloved Cockney flower girl, from her debut in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion through all the leading ladies who have portrayed her on film and stage until 2018. In addition, over 50 costumes from the original Cecil Beaton 1956 Broadway wardrobe will be on display, including the historic dress worn by Julie Andrews.
“This venture is unlike anything we have ever done before,” said Kimberly Wick, curator. “We are taking the traditional museum tour and elevating it to a multi-sensory journey that celebrates the best of Broadway, live performance, and dining in one glorious experience.”
Gala tickets are $225 and include a gourmet dinner, the immersive exhibition experience, and a performance by two-time Tony nominee Christine Andreas.
Starting in October, The Museum Club will feature:
Exhibit Lunch Package: $85 which includes the exhibition, 3-course meal, live entertainment, and Hat Room Experience.
Exhibit Group Fundraiser: $75 with 501 c(3) certificate.
Later in the season, The Museum Club will also be hosting special evening events that will include cocktail service at the sexy new bar, gourmet dining, and nationally acclaimed acts on the venue’s cabaret stage.
