Queen Victoria exhibit now open in Oklahoma museum
“Queen Victoria and the Victorian Era” is on exhibit through Feb. 22 at the Chisholm Trail Museum in Kingfisher. Artifacts exhibited include clothing and other personal items owned by Queen Victoria.
The collector asked that some of the proceeds from the exhibit be given to charity. Lynn said visitors who bring two canned food items can get into the museum free. And for those who don't bring food, half the $4 admission charge will go to the Kingfisher County Food Bank and St. Jude Children's Hospital.
Other items in the collection include robes owned by nobility and worn at the coronations of King Edward VII, King George V and Queen Elizabeth II.
The exhibit opened Dec. 15. Lynn said those who have seen it have enjoyed the artifacts.
“Some people were stunned,” Lynn said. “They ask how did we get this in Kingfisher. But you know when the majority of individuals gather at one spot and look intently, studying every piece, it's a success.”
The Chisholm Trail Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
