We took a short guided tour and also had audio guides. The museum has some priceless clothes going from Georgian to modern wonderfully displayed. Even if you're not much into fashion still worth seeing.

Much more interesting than it's title suggests although it was a fast 10 min hike uphill from the Roman Baths where we bought a combined ticket. Had not realised they were on separate sites. The Audio tour is well worth listening to. Ran out of time on the day and although you can return - the ticket only has a... More

For the ladies in your travel group, this place is a must. Was really surprised to see the old vintage clothing, laid out in an interesting way. Best of all was the boutique area where you get to try on vintage clothing. We had such a blast!

An amazing collection of dress, from Georgian times to current day. Beautiful dresses tastefully displayed without distractions. A chance for some dressing up for young and old with reproduction Victorian outfits for a bit of fun. The audio guide added to understanding of the displays. Staff were lovely too.

My friend and I found this museum particularly interesting as we both love clothes. Some really beautiful items are on display, and it's interesting to see the changes in the way we dress. Was enjoyable to see Queen Victoria's dress and the few Princess Diana dresses they had on show.

Wonderful dresses dating from the 1600's. I loved the georgian ones that you can imagine Jane Austen could have worn. And very special is the area where people can dress up themselves in old costumes and be fotographed. Also beautiful are the newer dresses like the stunning one of Vivian Westwood.

Wonderful displays of clothing from Georgian times to the present. The included audio guide gives extra detail and background relevant to each display. If you are also visiting the Roman Baths, buy a combined ticket to save money. At no extra cost, be sure to visit the Assembly Rooms upstairs if they have not been booked for a private function....

A great display of costumes for both women and men, from the Georgian period through to the 20th century. Although perhaps not quite so large as the £8 entry fee might suggest. The displays are well laid out and many of the costumes are quite beautiful, particularly the ones from the Georgian period. Worth a look, especially on a rainy... More

So pleased you had a good visit. I agree with you - the vibrant colours of the original Georgian fashions on display always make me feel better when its cold and grey outside. More

I was somewhat surprised when my wife dragged me to this museum. The array of costumes there daring right back to the early Georgians, were quite fascinating. Giving you an insight of the expansive clothes worn by our forbears over the years. Very interesting and well worth a visit. Buy a combined ticket at the Roman baths for a cheaper... More
