Even for men and women who are not necessarily into fashion, this is a very interesting collection of clothing. Seeing the changes in styles and fabrics through the centuries added to our understanding of history and culture in ways we did not expect. The displays are very well done, very well documented, and very well explained, which enriched the whole experience. I do not think young children would enjoy this museum as there is nothing geared to their age, which is a plus if you are an adult who would like to enjoy a museum in peace.
The Assembly Rooms, which are part of the ticket price and in the same building as the museum, were not open to the public the afternoon we went (due to a wedding there), so you might want to check availability before you go. No discount on the ticket was offered even though only half of the what we paid for was open to us.
