In honor of the inauguration of the 100th Royal Court in 2018, Pasadena Museum of History will present an exhibition celebrating the Pasadena Tournament of Roses® Royal Court. The unique exhibition will explore the traditions and history of the Royal Court, from the selection process to the Coronation and Rose Parade.  Exquisite Coronation gowns of past Rose Queens and Princesses will be on display, as well as daywear, accessories, and jewelry from the Court wardrobes. Vivid photos and ephemera documenting this century-long Pasadena tradition will enhance the exhibit, including original design drawings of the Queen’s Float.
