SAINT AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA
April’s Curator’s Tour will focus on the evolution of women’s undergarments and highlight Victorian fashion trends. This talk will seek to “bust” some myths about the dangers of corset-wearing and social extremes ladies of the 19th century sought to achieve. All unmentionables will be mentioned.
Tours are included in the price of admission and will begin in the front lobby of the Museum at 10am the first Wednesday of each month. Admission is free for St. Johns County residents with valid identification.
Elizabeth Graham, docent and textile guru, will assist Barry Myers in this entertaining and thought provoking tour.
An opportunity to meet Mr. Myers, along with an interactive tour, gives local residents and tourists alike an opportunity to learn the history of the building and to explore more deeply the Museum’s collections.
Donations are appreciated and will be accepted after the tour.
