The current exhibit, FASHION UNRAVELED, is really fascinating...it's all about imperfection and the style of incomplete garments. The best thing about The Museum at FIT is entrance is always FREE. If you are a tourist and especially if you are a fashion enthusiast put a...More

This museum is very small - maybe 70-100 sq meters or 800 sq ft - unless I mistakenly saw only one of many galleries. The collection is fashion focused and appears to change every few months. The specific one I saw in April was nicely...More

We saw an exhibit featuring undergarments (corsets and such) from the 1800s to present. We then saw an exhibit on a featured designer, which had some beautiful clothes from the 1950s to the present. Not crowded and free.

Went twice in the past week to see the Norell exhibition! Don't miss! And it's free! If you love fashion history, this is for you!

We probably spent a little over an hour browsing through this free museum. The exhibit were extremely well done. The garments were amazing. It was a quiet and comfortable time spent admiring iconic looks.
