I am not a fashionista, just a guy who appreciates good clothes and is interested in their past. ( I did wear patch work 16in. flair jeans and wide lapel suits, so I know!). It has to be worth acquiring good mannequins to show the display at its best. What they have are Burtons worst thrown out examples at best. Still worth a visit in a wonderful setting.

Don't miss this great museum. Fabulous fashion and really interesting commentary.. Combine with a visit to the Roman Baths.

Not only do you get to see the fashion museum, there are goodness knows how many beautiful rooms to see upstairs first. A lovely cafe selling handmade cake etc, etc. Down into the basement next for something to take your breath away.
Dresses and outfits from all walks of life and just about every era. Crates of shoes, hats, gloves, I couln't take it all in!

I have been to the Fashion Museum several times supervising school trips. This was my wife's first time, however, so I gamely went again.

The entrance fee is fairly steep at £7.50 (although this does include entrance to the ball room and assembly hall as well) but what annoyed me was the so-called 'concession' charge of £6.75 - giving students and pensioners the grand discount of 75p!

Inside the exhibitions ranged from the dated (some haven't changed at all for years) to the very up-to-minute (a fairly interesting display showing sporting fashion through the ages). The best bit is the 'behind the scenes' look at the museum, as this brings the collections to life somewhat. The rest of the presentation is fairly stilted, based around one meandering corridor.

If you're into fashion you might find it a bit tame, but overall an enjoyable enough forty-or-so minutes.

I went by myself and enjoyed looking at the fashion and history of the fashion- especially enjoyed the section on the queen. Wish that I could have seen more
