Costume Museum of Canada
Celebrating fashion, culture and history
The costume we wear each day is influenced by climate, occupation, economic factors, societal role, religion, the task at hand, age, gender and the time in which we live.
Our museum seeks to preserve and exhibit the costumes worn by the people of Canada over the decades.
Celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary with a Heritage Fashion Review or Hat Show
Planning a Canada 150th anniversary celebration? A Heritage Fashion Review or a Hat Show is the perfect combination of fashion and history. The Heritage Fashion Review features live models wearing reproductions of garments in our collection. The Hat Show features models wearing headwear from the 1870's to the 1970's. To book a show, call us at 204-989-0072 or email us at [email protected]
The Museum has many exciting opportunities for volunteers. We are currently looking for presenters for our Museum in a Suitcase Program. Presenters need to have a passion for fashion or history and be comfortable speaking in front of a group. A presenter training session will be held in late March or April. Find out more about volunteering with us.
