  • In London there is so much to see but I recommend a visit to the Fashion Museum for lovers of vintage dresses. Here you will find a small selection of clothes from 1600 to the present and accessories. You can also wear some clothes to catch crinoline and photos. It's not a visit challenging

  • This museum is a must visit if you are interested in studying cultural evolution. The collection is tasteful; the preservation and display, well done. The assembly rooms are very beautiful and the free tour of the galleries, highly recommend, especially if you like to add context to what you are seeing.
  • Well laid out without any one area being overwhelming. If you want to know more about the exhibit pieces, the plaques are informative, the audio guide giving a quick summary of the cases. Only problem is there is a lack of rotation in the exhibitions: if you have been once, your next visit will be pretty much the same. Quick tip: if you are a local and have a Discovery card, you get in for free!
  • Nice exhibition and it has some great stuff to try on.
  • It has amazing fashion ranging from the 17th century to today.
  • A lot of historical dresses, gloves. Descriptions who wore them. Price include getting dressed up in Victorian style fashion and you can take pictures in room painted in city scenery from Victorian times. Nothing Wow but nice to see what people wore back then. Bit pricy I guess.
