Please note the museum guidelines :

Fashion and textiles are particularly fragile objects.
To protect them, light levels are kept low and the following are not permitted in the Museum:
  • Touching the garments. The oil from your hands is damaging.
  • Pens or markers: Sketching in the galleries is permitted only with pencil.
  • Food, beverages (including water), gum.
  • Flash photography 
  • Tripods
  • Selfie Sticks
  • Movie and video cameras.
Non-commercial still photography for personal use is now permitted in designated galleries. Flash, tripods, and selfie sticks are not permitted. At times photography may be prohibited in certain galleries or of specific objects due to lender’s restrictions.

The Museum requests that you:
  • silence your cell phones.
I look forward to seeing you there!
