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.
An invitation to the past
This Nuit Blanche, join the Costume Museum of Canada as we showcase items from our extensive collection of wedding apparel. This exhibit will feature garments from the 1940's ranging from the austere, military-influenced fashion of the wartime period to the exuberant new look of the post war years. The display will be held at Dalnavert Museum Visitors Centre, 61 Carlton Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, on October 1, 2016 from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.
The Museum has many exciting opportunities for volunteers. We are currently looking for volunteers for our October 2016 exhibit. Find out more about volunteering with us.
