  • Loved it here. Set out very well and we got the chance to dress up to. Super
  • Nice little museum in the same building where are assembly rooms, just in the basement There is a nice collection of 1800' and later fashion, shoes, dresses, suits and accessories. Interesting to have a walk around and see the fine materials, the work and energy in them, and how uncomfortable they been to wear;) entry fee applies.
  • Very nice museum if you are interested in clothes through the ages. personally I found the earlier stuff much more fascinating than the modern things but there is something for everyone. And half way through you can dress up in period styled clothes. Great fun.
  • Interesting informative and certainly worth a visit. Would like to see more in the website.
  • Great collection, very good audioguide woth taking it
