Perfect place to learn more about history of fashion: the audioguide is great, brief and very didactic. I couldn't resist the temptation to try on some of the dresses and hats available on the big room...and had plenty of photographs, too! It's great fun, you learn a lot and you can imagine Jane Austen visiting the Assembly room upstairs. What... More

This place did not disappoint. A working museum by that I mean that the clothes not in show are stored in the display cases and not to the detriment of the items that are on show, if you are in any way interested in fashion then do find time to visit.

I enjoy seeing fashions from the past. The exhibit was well designed with an excellent audio tour. I highly recommend allowing 2 hrs if you want to listen to the whole tour and read the captions.

The exhibit had garments displayed from the late 1500s to current day. Lovely examples of designer and everyday items.

Very enjoyable and different exhibition - fashion through the ages. Really worth doing as a package ticket with the Roman Baths. Note: do this first and then beat the queues with the combi ticket to get into the very popular Baths!

We started with the highlights tour which was wonderful and our guide so knowledgeable and enthusiastic I could have listened to her all day. We spent a good two hours and I would go back again. Get the combined ticket with the Roman baths as great value.

Even my husband enjoyed this exhibit on fashion through the ages. The huge dresses people wore--oh my! The worst dress I've ever seen is also there (dress of the year for 2014--enjoy!).
