“Hollywood Costume”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

A great exhibit, wonderful for anyone who enjoys movies. Lots of well-known costumes on display, and how interesting to see the actual size of the actors who wore them!

“Excellent Exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The costumes are as you would expect - but the stories behind them are intriguing. Each costume has a screen display head of the actor. There are movie type stories from the movie Directors / Costume Designers and Actors, describing the concepts, behind each movie/scene, from Marilyn's White Dress in Some Like it Hot to the green dress from Atonement.
The layout is ok, but go to the 10am session, once the crowds build up it is hard to get close and read all the detail.
All in all one of the best Exhibitions of this type I have seen
Once you get in and see it - you will understand the cost is well worth it.
Sorry no photos to share as there is no photography in the exhibition - there is a book, paperback for $42.50 this covers everything in the exhibition

“Great Exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We recently visited the centre for the Hollywood Costume Exhibition which was amazing. Afterwards we decided to see the permanent exhibitions and loved it. There was everything from the car from Mad Max and tributes to great Australian actors like David Gulpilil and Cate Blanchett. Must see for lovers of Australian film and celebrities.
