  • I just had a terrible experience at this museum. I usually don’t write reviews. The security there needs some serious training on customer service. John Bailey who was working in the front was finding every possible reason to publicly humiliate my family. My daughter was tired from walking around the city and as we were in the front lobby trying to get directions he yelled at her and said it was a museum and she was not allowed to lay on the bench. I did not see any signs anywhere that stated this was not allowed. A very unprofessional way to address any concern. Don’t waste your time here. I’ve seen better and more extensive displays at the Smithsonians which are also free and the people who work there are more pleasant.
  • Changing exhibits and curated showings of current and historical fashion and design trends, ideas and important and not important people and places related to fashion. Most exhibits are so well mounted, that even people with no interest in fashion (like me), can enjoy going.
  • We enjoyed it. It was free and enjoyable experience if you are into fashion or sewing.
  • I love visiting this museum every so often. The exhibits rotate, and it’s free to enter! There’s also a public bathroom in the lobby which is good to know when you’re stranded in the city :) definitely check it out if you have some free time. It’s a small museum so you don’t need to spend hours here.
  • FREE. Great curated exhibits. Highly recommend if you like fashion.
