Wonderful clothes, many of which are 300 years old, and in such great condition they look new! Always a special place with great dress-up area for kids. Make sure you go!

We visited here because it was part of a deal to see the Roman Baths. I had very low expectations, particularly since it's a bit a a walk from the Baths.However, was hugely surprised that I found the whole place rather interesting, and enjoyed the couple of hours I spent following teenage daughter and wife around.

A great museum with fun dressing up for the kids (and the adults). Lots of interesting details described, especially for 17th to 19th centuries. Could have more on 20th century fashion. Would love to see more of what's tucked away in all those boxes!

Great experience. Beautiful customs from early Georgian to "up to date" designers. Interesting to see all the boxed costumes and accessories. What a great museum.

An amazing collection of fashion through the ages, hard to believe that actual people could get into some of the tiny outfits! By far the best bit is trying on some costumes and taking pictures in front of the backdrop of Edwardian Bath! Haven't laughed so much in ages and are now petitioning for the return of hooped petticoats and... More

Loved the amount of fashion on display and the audio guide really brought everything to life. Wasn't expecting such a display of fashions right up to present day which helped complete the visit. Enjoyed the dressing up as did many others on my visit.

Although the content of the museum was fantastic we were dissapointed that not more was on show. There seem to be so many boxes of items in the background. Would have loved to have seen shoes and accessories. For the cost it was all over too soon.

This was a very extensive and well displayed visual journey through the history of fashion, from the beautiful to the bizarre, from the simple to the most intricately ornate. It was difficult to drag 10 year old granddaughter away. It was more interesting than I had anticipated and a great reminder of the way in which fashion reflects what is... More

Located in the Assembley Rooms, the exhibition is made up of 20 display cases with various manequins displaying fashion through the ages. The display is brought to life by an informative audio description of notable items through the museum. A lovely large cafe with a selection of cakes Would go again
