“Step Back in Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

The Apron Museum is located in an old storefront in the sleepy southern town of Iuka. The proprietress is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about aprons that it's contagious! There are old aprons, new aprons, books about aprons and some related antiques. The aprons provide a timeline of women's roles and the sociological aspects of aprons are fascinating. Who knew! You won't regret a visit to this small town or it's unique museum.

“Americana, American History, and Beautiful, Funny Things all in One Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

The Apron Museum has historic aprons on display from the Civil War and kitschy ones from the 50s. There's a culture about aprons - the ones you wore for work and the ones you changed into to look pretty but represent the work that as done. I had no idea. There are hundreds on display, more crushed together for a scavenger hunt on racks, and new ones for sale made in the design of the vintage. The best part was hearing the stories from the owner. She has a passion for aprons and it made me passionate about this everyday item, too.
