What's On

Melbourne Museum and Sovereign Hill present A Victorian Silhouette.

Spend an evening behind the door of the boudoir to experience the secrets of A Victorian Silhouette. This one night only exhibition will showcase a range of fashions, including a wedding dress.

This special show will demonstrate how the 1850s silhouette was built through undergarments and foundation wear.

Costume is one of the most recognisable aspects of Sovereign Hill’s interpretation of life on the Victorian goldfields and is powerful in communicating how fashion, morality, etiquette and social structures have changed over time.

Presented in Melbourne Museum’s award-winning exhibition The Melbourne Story, enjoy these stunning costumes surrounded by more than 1200 objects from Museums Victoria’s humanities collection including Phar Lap, a Cobb and Co Coach and a Luna Park Big Dipper.

This is an adults only event.

Book your tickets before 12am on Wednesday 1 March for your chance to win a nights accommodation for two at Hotel Ibis Swanston St and a double pass to Sovereign Hill.
