It is difficult to believe that Diana, A Celebration, has been at Union Station Kansas City for 10 weeks. Only five weeks remain before the exhibition, which is in its last North American appearance, will be on it way back to England. Jun 12 came quickly.
But there is still plenty of time to purchase tickets and see this award-winning presentation before its last day, June 12. From all indications, the trip is well worth it. Outstanding reviews continue to come in from people who have seen Diana, A Celebration.
Here are a few examples (edited for spelling, grammar, etc.):
“I honor of Prince William’s wedding we went to the display. I enjoyed learning about her childhood. The collection of her clothes with the pictures of her wearing them was beautiful. The wedding dress was good to see.”
“The exhibit was thought-provoking, interesting, beautifully laid out, and educational. I was impressed and did not expect to be.”
“The exhibit was just what a fan of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, would love. Her elegant dresses were as stunning in person as in photographs. The exceptional styling and craftsmanship of those outfits, including her wedding dress, were obvious. To have seen her in person must have been a life-altering event. The environment was very good, so kudos to Kansas City’s Union Station.”
“The exhibit left you feeling how lucky we were to have had her in our world and feeling inspired to do good works.”
“Well worth the time to view priceless jewels, childhood articles, gowns/dressed and the fabulous wedding.”
“Wonderful exhibit of Diana’s dress and other personal items. It was very moving to be so close to things that were part of her life.”
“We loved the tracking of Diana’s life from childhood on including her wonderful charity work. And the clothes were just great. I believe I enjoyed them more than the spectacular wedding dress. We came away from the exhibit with a good feeling and would recommend it to anyone interested in such things.”
“It was great forum for the three generations of women in our family (who just celebrated a wedding, a 25-year wedding anniversary and a 50th wedding anniversary!) to reminisce, admire, compare and discuss design, weddings, families, jewels and history.”
“I went to see the Diana Exhibit because I was in awe of her and what she stood for. After leaving the exhibit, I love her even more. I was surprised to see the large selection of items to view. I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend stopping in. I left with bittersweet feelings. So glad I could experience it, but sad because it brought back to the forefront how I felt when she died. This is one you don’t want to miss!”
So little time left for an event that has moved thousands of people from all over the Midwest. Tickets for Diana, A Celebration, are available through all Ticketmaster outlets, the Union Station ticket office, the Sprint Center box office and www. unionstation.org.
