Behind the Scenes Tour: From Hoopskirts to Flappers (CANCELED)
January 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
*Update: 1/3/2022: As we see an increase in Covid-19 cases across our state and beyond, the Connecticut Historical Society will temporarily close to the public from Tuesday, January 4 through Saturday, January 15. We currently anticipate reopening the museum to the public on Tuesday, January 18. All on-site public programs and tours are canceled during this time.*
A woman born in 1850 who lived for 80 years would have seen fashion change dramatically in her lifetime. In this special tour of our Costume and Textile Collection, you’ll see how women’s clothing transitioned from the iron reign of the hoopskirt to the relative freedom of the flapper dress.
$10 for CHS members, $15 for non-members. Advance registration is strongly recommended: space is limited! Buy tickets here.
Ticket includes admission to the museum’s galleries.
