Fashion and Martians on Exhibit at the Waterloo Region Museum

WATERLOO REGION – Ontario’s largest community museum opens two new exhibits this month. Street Style and Museum Mysteries will be on exhibit at the Waterloo Region Museum from June 11 to Jan. 4, 2015.

Street Style looks at women’s fashion and architectural design, which often share sources of inspiration as they follow similar paths of production, from conceptual drawings to beautiful and functional creations. Street Style features more than 70 pieces of women’s clothing, shoes and accessories from the 1850s to 1970s, many having never been on public exhibition. Waterloo Region Museum partnered with the Fashion History Museum to create Street Style, one of eight exhibits that are part of Building Waterloo Region – a festival of architectural design excellence that takes place at art galleries and museums across Waterloo Region in 2014. Partial funding for Street Style was provided by the Government of Ontario. The recommended age for the Street Style exhibit is 11 years of age and up.

Museum Mysteries invites families to step into the extraordinary world of mysterious and unique objects from the Waterloo Region Museum collection as we create our own Cabinet of Curiousity with some of the more unusual objects in the museum's collection. Many objects on exhibit relate to Waterloo Region – they were used here, made here or collected here. Other objects, some connected to famous people and events in world history, have been collected by the museum since the Waterloo Historical Society first began collecting in 1912. This fun exhibit features stories about everything from alligators in New Hamburg to out-of-this-world Martians over Cambridge – visitors can judge if every story is true or not! The recommended age for this exhibit is 8 years of age and up.

One admission price includes entry to the new Street Style and Museum Mysteries exhibits, plus the Waterloo Region Museum main exhibit What Makes Us Who We Are? and Doon Heritage Village.
