An exhibit at the Chisholm Trail Museum in Kingfisher is going to be around a while longer, thanks to a warm welcome.

The “Queen Victoria and the Victorian Age” exhibit opened in December and was to wrap up its run Friday, but the closing date has been extended to March 31. The museum is at 605 Zellers Ave.

The exhibit features items and artifacts from the Victorian era including personal items of clothing worn by Queen Victoria. The items in the exhibit were loaned to the museum by a private collector who lives in the Dallas area but has roots in Kingfisher.

“We've had record-breaking attendance in December and January,” museum curator Adam Lynn said. “Everyone who has seen it has really enjoyed the exhibit. When they get here, they wonder how it got to Kingfisher.”

The museum drew 1,100 visitors in January, and Lynn said he expects that total will be eclipsed when February's final figures are in. The response is the reason the collector extended the exhibit, he said.

The museum also is hosting an exhibit about the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. Content for that exhibit is on loan from the World War II Museum in New Orleans.
