Details

The second part of the display looks at our fashion collection from 1780 to 1900. Beautiful dresses and elegant waistcoats are displayed with a rich array of accessories.

It's not just outerwear - learn how the fashion for the changing shape of the female silhouette was made possible by delving into the mysterious world of historic underwear, with crinoline cage frames, petticoats and bodices.

Entry to display is included with museum admission.
