Það sem verður gert

You will be greeted by a guide dressed in early 1900's attire and be personally-guided on an in-depth excursion through 200 years of men’s and women’s hats. You will leave this experience armed with enough information to speak confidently with others on the subject of hats. This diverse assemblage of nearly 2,000 hats has something for all visitors: historical hats dating as far back as 1820; hats from all eras; hats from Hollywood movies and famous designers; and hats made from a variety of materials, including cork, horsehair, mushrooms, feathers, silk, and intricately spun straw. You will hear a series of vibrant, interesting stories that take them on a chronological tour throughout history. You will gain knowledge of how history and hats have gone hand-in-hand, why dramatic changes in the style and function of hats have occurred, and reasons for the decline of hat-wearing. You will also learn of the massive industries that have come and gone with the evolution of hats, and that that evolution includes interesting and obscure facts (ie: a few women developing a way to prevent hats from causing the extinction of birds and leading to the establishment of the Audubon Society.)

My all-consuming interest in hats started at an early age. I still have the first hat that I wore to church as a child. As a youngster, I used to entertain myself by making large intricate hats out of newspaper. I have pursued my passion for hats through collection and an intense interest in their origins and histories. My mission is two-fold: preserve these treasures and share my knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm for hats with as many people as possible. My role is as caretaker of these wonderful pieces of history, left behind by the most interesting characters.
