Part of life and industry in West Michigan for the past half-century, Amway is the creation of two entrepreneurs - Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel - and their determination to convert dream into reality. The exhibit tells the story of these two men and the company they established together. The Public Museum curators worked closely with Amway to cull items from company archives and craft messages that capture the firm’s unique story. The majority of items in the exhibit are on loan from Amway, including some personal items of Jay and Rich. These include letters about their desire to start a business together, exchanged during WWII. The exhibit also showcases some of their lesser-known ventures and products, including a bomb shelter sold by Amway during the 1960s. The exhibit will be open for one year.
