EXHIBITS

April 26, 2021-January 8, 2022 | Special Exhibit: The Story Behind Their Clothes | Marquette

The Marquette Regional History Center (MRHC) presents “Special Exhibit: The Story Behind Their Clothes.” What do Yoopers wear? Yoopers have been pioneers, Victorian businessmen, farming women, immigrant families, Northern Michigan University students, and more. The clothes in the exhibit represent some of the many ordinary people who helped shape the Marquette community over the last 170 years. This exhibit draws from the MRHC’s extensive collection of clothing and accessories from the fashionable to the everyday. Items seldom displayed include handmade deer gloves, a handwoven linen dress, a young girl’s silk outfit made from her father’s World War II flight jacket lining, and more. The exhibit is open during regular museum hours, and it takes place at the Marquette Regional History Center. The cost is $7/adult, $6/senior, $3/student, and $2 for children 12 and under.
