Hats Off!

From April 30 to August 18, 2013

This exhibition has ended.

The Hats Off! exhibition presents 80 hats of a wide variety of purposes and styles, showcasing this clothing accessory that was long a wardrobe staple in Quebec, particularly between the 1920s and 1970s.

The cap may have replaced the hat in recent years, but the fact remains that the hat was once an indispensable accessory worn to social events big and small.

An exhibition produced by the Museum of Civilization.
