Ten years after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Bruce Springsteen is getting his very own exhibit in the Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Billboard reports. The exhibit, titled “From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen,” has been a long time goal for the Hall of Fame that is finally coming to fruition.

“He’s someone we’ve always wanted to do a big exhibit on,” said Jim Henke, the museum’s curator. “So it’s one of those things that I’d bring up with his manager from time to time. Last summer they said, ‘Yes, it makes sense now.'”

“Once (Bruce) knew this was real, that it would really happen, he wanted it to have as much depth as it could possibly have,” said Jon Landau, Springsteen’s manager and board member of the hall. “He is fully behind this exhibition and the effort the museum has made to really get things right.”

The exhibit’s various Boss memorabilia will includes guitars, scrapbooks, clothing and notebooks, most of which was donated by Springsteen himself. A highlight of the exhibit will be Springsteen’s 1960 Chevrolet Corvette.

Henke went on to explain that the exhibit will be one of the most detailed the museum has curated to date, in the same league as John Lennon and Bob Dylan’s.

The exhibit will run from April 1, 2009 to spring of 2010.
