LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Costumes, toys, photos and autographs from Shirley Temple's 1930s film career are coming to a city near you.

A spokeswoman for the late actress said Monday that a collection of keepsakes from Temple's time in Hollywood will be exhibited at museums across the country before being put up for auction in July.

Publicist Cheryl Kagan says the traveling exhibition will begin April 30 at the Strong Museum in Rochester, New York.

Among the items on view will be a baby grand piano inscribed by Theodore Steinway and a child-size race car that was a gift from Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, along with Temple's autograph collection and costumes from her various films.

The exhibit will travel to Boston, New Jersey, California and Texas before the July 14 auction in Kansas City, Missouri.
