Meet Antonia Kupiec who flew from Florida to New Jersey for the day to see the Love, Shirley Temple exhibit. Upon entering the gallery she burst out in tears citing the joy Shirley has brought to her life since a young girl. Here she stands in front of her personal favorite, the coat and hat Shirley wore in The Little Princess. We are so happy you came to visit, Antonia! And yes, tears are allowed at any of the exhibits.
