VOLO, Ill., (AP) -- A northern Illinois auto museum is featuring a special exhibit about Princess Diana.

The exhibit will open at the Volo Auto Museum on Thursday, the 20th anniversary of Diana's death, as reported by the Northwest Herald.

A specially equipped Rolls Royce Silver Spur that Princess Diana rode in during a visit to Chicago will be on display, along with photos and documents from her last U.S. visit.

The museum is located about 50 miles east of Rockford.

Brian Grams, director of the museum, says Diana was known for her kindness and charity so the museum wanted to do "something that would have made her smile."

Instead of collecting admission, the museum is taking donations for the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
