Costumes & Textiles

This collection of about 2,400 items consists primarily of women’s fashions from the 20th century including shoes, hats and accessories. There is also a small collection of uniforms, including military, childrenswear, under garments, sportswear and men’s suits.

An additional collection of 130 items, mostly Victorian, was transferred from Darlington Tubwell Row Museum in 1998.
