The collection of period costume housed here is excellent, dating back to the 18th century right up to modern day, however I was a little disappointed with the lack of male fashion costume. I would have liked to have seen male fashions from the 30's 40's 50's 60's and 70's. It's not as though the museum doesn't have the room to extend their exhibits, I noticed 2 more floors that could have been utilised for this purpose. I liked the architecture, staircase, rooms and surrounding parkland. It is well worth a visit but one for the ladies I think..
