  • Hey, it's a free museum so why not give it a try. It is fairly small, and I covered it all in 30 minutes. You can find here exhibitions about clothing and its design. The exhibitions are changing and when I was here it was about late 1800s and early 1900s dresses, as well as uniforms throughout time. If you love design and clothing then definitely check the place out for some history and inspiration.
  • Its a free enterance to look around fasion design history from long ago to modern fasion, its interesting but not much to look at
  • Its not big, but it is FREE and the content is good for those aspiring to be in the fashion world. I wouldn't make it a "tourist" stop unless this is your thing, but if you are also in the area, why not stop in? Good, small museum of fashion history and current trends.
  • Great for my little fashionista who is 8 years old. Had a blast. Small offer and quick exibits but being here is inspirational to designers.
  • Fascinating little rotating exhibits. And it's free so fun to drop in when you're in the neighborhood with a little extra time on your hands.
