Organizers worked with Houston's family to acquire a diverse set of artifacts, including rare photos, stage costumes and even her personal bible.
"This exhibit is a token of appreciation from our family for Whitney's fans to enjoy and embrace," said Pat Houston, Whitney Houston's manager. "We hope they are as elated as we are to have shared in such a remarkable life."
Houston died in February at the age of 48.
