Special Exhibits add to the diversity of the Lightner Museum experience.

Aside from the Museum’s permanent collection of fine and decorative Victorian era art and relics, special exhibitions are held periodically to showcase the Museum’s collections that usually remain unseen to the public. On occasion, private collections that pertain to the Museum’s holdings are featured in special, temporary exhibits.
