They cleaned up at the Grammys and now Macklemore and Lewis are cleaning out their closets. And you'll be able to get a close-up look at their thrift shop finds at EMP Museum.

The Seattle museum is going to display several Macklemore & Ryan Lewis costumes and props in the upcoming exhibition, "Spectacle: The Music Video" opening on May 17.

The exhibit will include the fur coats worn in the "Thrift Shop" video; The Heist flag, Macklemore’s fur jacket and wolf hat from "Can’t Hold Us"; MTV “Moonman” awards; and other costumes and artifacts.

Also part of the show is an original film about the pair's creative process.
