Jan 28th, 2023 - Apr 22nd, 2023 ·

History Museum of Mobile is excited to announce the next major exhibition, Dressing the Abbey, opening in January 2023. Dressing the Abbey weaves fashion, history, and popular culture into an exhibition featuring costumes from Downton Abbey™, one of the most widely watched television dramas in the world. The exhibition will be on view at the History Museum of Mobile from Jan. 28 to April 22, 2023. The exhibition features thirty-five costumes worn by men and women and invites viewers to discover the turbulence of the Edwardian era and the cultural impact of the First World War. From rich country tweeds to sumptuous evening gowns, to a starched footman's livery, the textiles in this exhibition speak to a transformational moment in art, fashion, design, and history. for more information and to purchase your ticket visit http://www.historymuseumofmobile.com/upcoming-exhibits/
