Fashion Museum – Resources

Visitors to the study facilities have access to the Museum's collection of around 60,000 examples of dress, accessories and textiles, dating from the 17th century through to the present day.


Visitors are able to book a study table to look at a selection of objects from the museum collection or books on the history of dress, including exhibition catalogues, pamphlets and journals.


Study tables can be booked on a Thursday or Friday for a morning and/or afternoon session. A morning session lasts from 1100 - 1300 and an afternoon session from 1400 - 1600. We can tailor-make sessions according to your needs.


This service is included in the cost of admission to the Fashion Museum, but must be booked in advance. We welcome donations.
