Masson Pavilion Exhibition Hall

Visit our brand new costume exhibition in the Masson Pavilion.

What do you wear on a day out in Derbyshire, and how has the way we dress changed over the centuries?

Saturday 14th May 2022 saw the opening of a major new exhibition that showcases exquisite reproductions of period costumes as worn by the Georgian, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian guests who visited the Heights of Abraham between 1787 and 1910.

Modern day guests will be able to walk back through time and come face to face with visitors of the past, whilst learning a little about the social and working conditions of their time. 14 life-sized mannequin figures, beautifully dressed in historically accurate clothing, populate the large exhibition housed in the refurbished Masson Pavilion. Animated picture frames alongside the figures reveal information about each time period.

The exhibition is housed in the Masson Pavilion, which has undergone a transformation into a dramatic theatrically lit space, with a new ramped entrance and canopied exit to allow for access for all visitors.
