Description

For the first time in fifty years, the Dordrechts Museum will be putting its extensive fashion collection on exhibition. We will showcase 50 masterpieces that trace the most important silhouettes of 150 years of fashion: from the 18th to the 20th centuries. All information at this exhibition is in English.

HUIS VAN GIJN: LADIES’ WARDROBES
Time has stood still for more than a century in Van Gijn House (Huis Van Gijn). This museum allows you to catch a glimpse of the life of the Van Gijn family around 1900. Enter Van Gijn House and admire the wardrobe of well-to-do ladies from the 18th to the 20th centuries, surrounded by interiors from the 18th and 19th centuries. A hundred years ago and earlier, the upper classes were expected to follow multiple dress codes a day. There was a different garment for each part of the day. This was not merely an expression of social status: changing clothes regularly also meant less wear and tear and a longer life for the precious items.
