Wild Wonderful King Vintage Museum

40680 Highway 41
Oakhurst, CA 93644



Allan King and his late wife Barbara collected vintage clothing for over 20 years. For years, the King family held fashion shows to gather the funds necessary to open the Museum.

In 2002, in conjunction with the Wild Wonderful Women organization the dream of the King family became reality. The Museum opened with a feature exhibit of the Civil War era. In 2004, the Museum moved nearer to the Children's Museum of the Sierra and the feature exhibit was a bridal collection.

In October 2005, the Museum moved to its new location in the same building as the Children's Museum of the Sierra with the feature exhibit "The Flapper Age." Come and see the Victorian room with ballroom slippers that date back to 1790, the "Corset" display, and the dresses of the 1800's.

Other exhibits include a Civil War sword, Civil War discharge papers, and military uniforms. The bridal collection includes wedding dresses dating from the 1890 to 1985. The children's display includes shoes, clothing, dolls, and books of the nineteenth and twentieth century.
