It finishes on January 8, 2006, so by the time i'm in London it will be over!:(
Does anyone know will the exhibition be going to Norway or anywhere else in the world? It would be a shame for all those fantastic gowns to be going back into storage.

The gowns are owned by one of the Norwegian museums, I believe, which had them on exhibition long before they were exhibited in Britain. (The name in English escapes me now.) King Harald and his sisters donated them after their father's death.

I'm sure the gowns will go back for further exhibition in the museum in Oslo.

Thankyou norwegianne. I hope they do go back to Norway soon because I should be there sometime next summer.
