The Museum of Historical Costume

Exhibition in Brzeg extended until 4 May

Due to numerous requests for the extension of the “Elegance Time, Time of Singularity” exhibition, we are happy to inform that it will end only on 4 May.

The Museum of Silesian Piasts in Brzeg on May 1-3 will be open from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

A long weekend is a great opportunity to go to the museum and see the peculiar and beautiful women’s costumes of the 19th century.

The exhibited costumes reflect almost all the most important styles in the fashion of this period. At the exhibition visitors can see, among other things, elegant wedding clothes along with accessories from 1878-1879, an unusual evening dress from the 1890s with a rich decoration of embroidered beads. The exhibition will present an interesting collection of dresses on crinolines from the 1840s to 1860s. Visitors may also admire seemingly modest dresses from the beginning of the century.

We acquired some dresses from world-renowned museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

We look forward to seeing you.

Below we attach photos from the March opening of the exhibition.
