Fashion and Textile Museum Review

The museum reopened in 2008 and has a cafe that's open seven days a week serving organic dishes and offers free WiFi. There is also a recommended shop - Shop@FTM - which is a fantastic showcase for up and coming designers. I think it would a great place to shop for unique gifts.

The exhibition space covers two open plan floors and shows regularly changing temporary exhibitions on fashion and textile themes. I enjoyed these exhibitions: Little Black Dress and Billy: Bill Gibb's Moment in Time.

Nearby Dining

The Garrison Public House is close to the museum and serves British cuisine.
