Bustles to Bikinis: The Care & Preservation of a Diverse Collection
February 12, 2000 - November 24, 2000
The Yakima Valley Museum's collection of period clothing is the largest collection in the museum. Containing over 9,000 individual dresses, pairs of shoes, hats, scarves, purses, and pieces of underwear, the collection, which dates from 1800 to the present, has been acquired primarily through individual donations.
Every piece has a story to tell.
