CHANGING FASHIONS AND LIFESTYLES

The Wenham Museum’s costume collection of more than 10,000 pieces of clothing, accessories, and textiles from the Victorian era onward offers a surprising peek into the closets and households of yesteryear.  From day dresses to wedding gowns, parasols to brooches, and bed linens to quilts, this collection represents changing fashions and lifestyles across the decades.
