The British Are Coming!

The British royal family has a rich tradition of power and grace. This tradition is clearly embodied in the British Crown Jewels. While the jewels never leave the Tower of London, the only existing sanctioned replicas will be on display at the Amelia Island Museum of History, April 22nd through July 24th.
Come celebrate the opening of this exhibit with a special presentation and reception with Nicolaus and Suzan Findeisen, who worked closely with the Tower of London to create the only sanctioned replicas of the British Crown Jewels. Join us on April 22nd at 5:30 p.m. as we learn about the princess who shares our island’s name and experience the splendor of the British Crown Jewels.
