Period pieces from the Museum and private collections, as well as reproductions from the late Victorian period (1870-1900) and through 1920, are on display throughout the building. Each room in the museum presents a different part of the clothing of the Victorian family. Dresses, outerwear, accessories, underwear and lingerie are displayed throughout the building. Many special pieces have been extracted from the archives of this exhibition. The informational signage will address many myths of Victorian clothing. This is an exhibition not to be missed!
