Exploring the museum

1. The hats

Leisure - Hat works collection

The Gallery of Hats is currently closed. Building work is scheduled to create new spaces for learning, storage and display.

This gallery will explore how hats can transform, protect and say something about who you are. They can be used to blend in or stand out in a crowd. Designs can be inspired by nature, architecture, social issues and more. Made using a vast array of materials, hats are always great a conversation starter.

The Gallery of Hats will showcase exciting additions to our collection when it reopens.
