A Victoria Day Museum is planned
According the the newspaper Östran, a museum about the Victoria Day (the Crown Princess' birthday) is planned on Öland. Nothing is finnished yet and it's still in the planning stage, but the Royal Court has apparently been positive in their judgement after the contacts that the organiser has had with them. The museum would for example feature photographs from both the press and private individuals, mementos and perhaps copies of gifts that the Crown Princess has received from the recipients of the Victoria Scholarship.
