Just steps away from the most prestigious couture boutiques, the Galliera Museum is located in a Renaissance-inspired palace. Through temporary monographic exhibitions – renowned couturier, major figures in fashion – or thematic exhibitions – by decade, type of clothes, trends and influences – the museum displays part of its invaluable and fragile collection, which bear witness to the creative genius in fashion from the 18th century to present day. The museum does not display its permanent collection. After work is completed to bring the building up to security and accessibility standards, the museum will reopen in autumn 2013 and welcome the public to a building with improved infrastructure.
