OGDEN — To celebrate its grand reopening, the museum on 25th Street in Ogden is displaying unique artifacts from the Brent and Charlene Ashworth Collection on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Amelia Earhart’s flight jacket, Butch Cassidy’s revolver, Muhammad Ali’s autographed boxing glove, George Washington’s wallet and dozens of other artifacts from the Ashworths’ collection will be at the museum for a single day.

According to 25th Street Museum board member Joseph Kerry, the Ashworth Collection is one of the largest private historical collections.

“It’s just phenomenal, he (Brent Ashworth) has it all,” board member Emilea Middleton said of the Provo collector.

A special exhibit honoring the service of deceased Ogden police officer Charles Manzel will also be on display during the museum’s open day. Manzel was killed in the line of duty on May 9, 1921, where the museum stands today.

Three rooms and a hallway make up the quaint museum just above Legacy Tattoo on historic 25th Street. With only a sign on a small door to the right of the shop, Middleton said too often people walk into Legacy Tattoo looking for the museum.

Although the museum never officially closed during the pandemic, Kerry said it hadn’t advertised or presented any exhibits in the past two years and was excited to be exhibiting pieces again. historical artifacts.
