The Fashion Museum Bath is one of the world’s great museum collections of historical and contemporary dress. The headline exhibition A History of Fashion in 100 Objects shows how fashions have changed throughout the ages, while the annual Dress of the Year selection shines a spotlight on contemporary fashion. New this year is the show-stopping exhibition Royal Women, which showcases royal dress and explores the fashions worn by four successive generations of women in the British royal family. Visitors can also create their own period outfit from the dressing up items. A vibrant events programme offers creative workshops, after-hours talks and family activities. For anyone living in BANES, Fashion Museum entry is free with a Discovery Card.
