'Diana: A Celebration' exhibit makes its final stop in the Tri-State

CINCINNATI -- 'Diana: A Celebration' is an exhibition that showcases the life and work of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, and the tour will make its last stop in Cincinnati Friday.

For the last decade, the exhibit has traveled around the world. The Museum Center on Cincinnati's west side will be its last stop, when patrons can experience history through Diana's royal gown, artifacts, and handwritten letters.

"When I think she actually got out her carriage on her wedding day," art curator Graeme Murton said. "Everybody thought she got out the carriage and the train kept coming and coming and coming."

The royal gown, said to be the star of the show, is made of ivory and silk taffeta, and boasts a 25-foot train.

The exhibit will run until through August 17, then Diana's belongings will return to her sons in England.

"We feel it's right and proper, quite honestly after this amount of time, we have a new generation of family members in the royal household and it's probably time to move on," Murton said.

WCPO reporter Cierra Johnson visited Museum Center and learned what the exhibit has in store.
