Michigan museum to show off 19th-century undergarments
Whaley Historic House Museum on Saturday showcases “Shh! Let’s Talk About Those Unmentionables,” an exhibit that tracks the evolution of undergarments.
The Flint Journal reports that visitors to the exhibit will learn about underwear that children put on their dolls, controversies over corsets and how different the process of getting dressed was for Americans during that time period.
The exhibit also will be open on July 26, Aug. 2, and Aug. 16 during regular museum tour hours. Appointments can also be made for weekday tours.
