3. Fashion Museum, Bath & North East Somerset

Bath, England’s Fashion Museum (formerly the Museum of Costume) was founded in 1963 by the designer Doris Langley Moore; her own private collection became the basis for this museum’s permanent collection. Today, the museum is known for its timely exhibitions. Two current examples? “Jubilee: Dressing the Monarchy on Stage and Screen” and “Sport and Fashion,” which includes important uniforms from past Olympic Games.

Feel like dressing up? The Fashion Museum has a collection of “replica garments” you can try on. There’s the predictable Victorian dress, but also corsets, crinolines, and special costumes that reflect themes of current exhibits.
