NEW YORK – The family of elegant Audrey Hepburn is blasting a museum dedicated to the late actress and wants it shut down.
Hepburn's two sons charge that an exhibition in Tolochenaz, Switzerland, is cheapening and exploiting her good name.
Her eldest son, Sean Ferrer, said that instead of celebrating the beloved actress -- who died in 1993 -- the museum is a tacky shrine comparable to Graceland, the former home of Elvis Presley.
"This is not Graceland," Ferrer told the Daily Telegraph. "Tolochenaz was a place where my mother could be like everyone else, go to the market, go shopping and be treated like a normal person."
Initially, the idea behind the museum was to celebrate the star of Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sabrina and countless other classic movies for her charity work and support of good causes.
Tolochenaz was Hepburn's home for the last 30 years of her life.
Now, her sons have demanded the return of dozens of her personal belongings, including letters, photos and her Academy Award from Roman Holiday, which were on loan to the museum.
The museum has attracted 25,000 visitors since it opened six years ago.
It also houses a collection of outfits -- including the little black dress she wore as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Particularly galling to Hepburn's children is the sale of souvenirs - including Audrey Hepburn jam and greeting cards featuring her childhood drawings.
