Maybe its a blokey thing but I thought it focused too much on the historical decades and had practically nothing relating to fashion in the 60's and 70's. Surely when fashion really exploded were these two decades but apparently dismissed from the ''History of Fashion in 100 Objects' as not worthy! Certainly not worth the admission price - go else where for free (eg Holburne Museum at end of Great Pulteney Street is fantastic).

My wife dragged me here during our visit to Bath. It was near our hotel so agreed to go to make her happy. I actually really enjoyed it and she had to push me along as I started reading more about the clothes, history etc. We were only there about an hour and a half. Something different

I have visited the Fashion Museum many times before, but visited this time on a Sunday to see the latest Lace exhibition.

There are useful audio guides included with the ticket (£9 for adult) which give you more info, but there are also descriptive panels if you choose not to use these.

Particularly enjoyed the historic narrative alongside the fashion itself. Some amazing examples of fashion throughout the ages. Also has a chance to try on some replica items!

There were some nice things in the shop, although we did not purchase anything. For couples or family visits, would recommend visiting early morning as it was getting very busy when we left.

100 pieces are used to effectively show how we (men and women) have dressed over the past several hundred years. Presented with just enough to information to keep everyone fascinated and engaged. I'm not necessarily a big fashion gan, but found the exhibit engaging.
