Mall of America® Welcomes Diana, A Celebration Exhibition for 2012

What

Diana, A Celebration, the award-winning exhibition that chronicles the life and work of one of the most remarkable women of her time – Diana, Princess of Wales – will open at Mall of America® on level 4, east on Feb. 4 and run through June 10, 2012. On loan from Althorp Estate, the Spencer family's 500-year-old ancestral home in England, the exhibition contains 150 objects throughout nine galleries, ranging from Princess Diana's royal wedding gown and 28 of her designer dresses to family heirlooms, personal mementos, items representing her abundant charity work, paintings and rare home movies and photos.

A special gift package will be available to purchase at any guest service desk Nov. 25 - Dec. 24 for $75. The package, valued at $90, will include two exhibit tickets, two audio tours and one Diana: A Celebration catalog.

The exhibition is produced by Arts & Exhibitions International, which brought the blockbuster King Tut exhibition to St. Paul last year. Each year, a donation from exhibition proceeds is made to The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund (Registered Charity No. 1064238).
