This museum has clothes dating back to the Georgian era and ends with the dress of the year dating back to the 70s. I would have liked to have seen more men's fashions as these were sadly lacking.

The audio tour added to the display of beautiful clothes through the ages giving additional details and background. It was fascinating to see how laws & embargos on materials have influenced fashion. Some of the colours have been preserved to amazing effect. Equally it is easy to see how some shapes and styles have been repeated and reworked over the... More

My friend and I decided to visit this Museum, really not sure of its value. We loved it , seeing fashion centuries old to the modern age. Plenty to see! And a chance to dress up too in clothes from the olden days!

Nothing exceptional to be seen. Sadly lacks in some creative thinking where mens fashion is addressed. What about cravats, ties, man bags, cufflinks, shoes, spats etc. Surely its not all about 60/70s style or boring black, blue and grey suits for the guys

My sister and I really enjoyed this museum even though neither of us is particularly into or up on fashion. It was fascinating to see how and in some cases why fashion has progressed the way it has. We also enjoyed trying on stuff in the dressing up section!

The focus is on the Georgian era with some limited later examples of more modern clothes, including a number of designers of the year. Expensive entry for what it is.

I loved my couple of hours spent absorbing the fashion displays at this place. Hard to believe that people were so tiny and so restricted in Georgian and Victorian times. I loved the quotes and literary references in the store room section too.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and very interesting to have them all laid out chronologically-ish. I found the old ones most interesting and can't quite believe they have survived that long. If 20th century is more your thing there is a large selection by some very big names. Didn't bother with the dressing up but lots of people seemed to be having... More
