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.

As part of a driving tour of England, we saw many museums. Compared to others, this one seemed lacking. There were plenty of displays of clothing, but all behind glass walls. Also, there was an attempt to show the chronological order of the development of fashion, but the time periods appear choppy with significant gaps.

Bought the value tix with Roman Baths included.

This museum has fantastically designed clothes, some hundreds of years old.

Very impressive.

We bought a combined ticket for the Roman Baths and the Fashion Museum. The museum is small, but there are some nice displays and lovely clothes. The audio guide wasn't great, and I had audio guide overload after a while. The best part of the visit though was walking through the amazing Assembly Rooms!

There are some really interesting displays in the Fashion Museum and the Assembly Rooms are simply beautiful. It is perhaps a bit expensive for what it is though. I would highly recommend the café.
