Open to visitors every Wednesday through Sunday, the show offers 15 masked visitors per hour the chance to explore Ross’ refurbished studio, which is located in the former WIPB public television station at the museum’s Lucius L. Ball House.
“We made it as close as possible to how it appeared when he filmed here,” George Buss, vice president of visitor experience at Minnetrista, tells the Times.
Among the items on display are Ross’ paintbrushes, easel and palette, as well as the Vicks VapoRub he used to clear his sinuses, his hair pick, his shirts and his keys. Unusually, visitors are allowed to touch and interact with a number of the replica objects featured.
