The award-winning exhibition Diana, A Celebration, which chronicles the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, will open at the Putnam Museum on September 14, 2013, and will remain on view through January 5, 2014.
The exhibition presents the life and humanitarian work of one of the 20th century’s most remarkable women through nine galleries containing 150 objects-ranging from her royal wedding gown and 28 of her designer dresses to family heirlooms, personal mementoes, paintings and rare home movies and photos. The exhibition is on loan from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer family’s 500-year-old ancestral home. Once the global tour ends in summer 2014, the priceless collection will go to Diana’s sons as was directed in her will. The items will remain with the family and be safeguarded for future generations.
