About Us

The Totnes Fashion and Textiles Museum houses the Devonshire Collection of Period Costume. The Collection was founded in 1967, and since 1974 the Museum has mounted a new themed exhibition every year.

The Museum and its Collection is maintained as an entirely voluntary organisation. It is a registered Charity (no. 277327) and is accredited by the Arts Council. As well as mounting the annual exhibition, it organises talks, loans items to other accredited museums, and facilitates research on the Collection.
