Behind-the-Scenes Tour: From Hoop Skirts to Mini Skirts
Whether it is a yellow silk dress worn to Lincoln’s inaugural ball or a psychedelic maxi dress from the 1960s, our costume collection tells the story of women’s fashion in Connecticut. We’ll share that story with everything from wedding dresses to corsets, but we’ll also explore how women worked to secure their health, freedom, and political participation.
Tour lasts approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Questions? Call (860) 236-5621x289 or email Jenny Steadman.
