Featured Collection: Reveal or Disguise
Mid-September to mid-December 2023

Costumes reflect our personality and interests, show off our creativity and let us take on another identity — transforming into someone or something else as we step out of our daily routines. The current What We Wore exhibit offers a look at costumes dating from the 1920s to the 2020s.

Featured costumes include a playful rabbit costume worn by a member of the Firestone family to a 1950s masquerade party. There’s also an astronaut costume that let kids imagine themselves as part of the NASA team during the 1950s and 1960s space race between the Soviet Union and the United States. And there are costumes that transform the wearer into a favorite character from television or movies, including Barney, a friendly T. Rex who captured kids’ hearts beginning in the early 1990s.

Stop by to see the costumes and discover their personal stories. And perhaps share a memory of a favorite costume of your own.
