WHAT THE FROCK!

The What the Frock exhibition explores garments worn to celebrate and protect the move of an individual from one social category to another. Often there is a ceremony or a ritual connected to this ‘rite of passage’ to mark the event. Here you will see dresses, garments and accessories worn at weddings, funerals, burials, balls, christenings, and other celebrations.

 

Come and explore the exhibition - the Museum is open every day!
