New temporary exhibition

New temporary exhibition open at Akaroa Museum. An exhibition of clothing

This winter, Akaroa Museum showcases nine outfits from its June Hay costume collection with June’s Wardrobe: an autobiography in outfits.

June Hay, nee Goodwin, from Pigeon Bay is renowned locally for her interest in fashion, as a dress maker, and for keeping her entire wardrobe, a collection that spans several decades. The selection in this exhibition reflects the transition June made from a young single woman in the 1940s to a wife and mother in the 1950s and 1960s.

The exhibition runs from May to November 2019. Akaroa Museum is open daily from 10:30 am until 4 pm.
