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.
