Lightner Museum Curator’s Tour
March 30, 2016

Lightner Museum Curator Barry Myers conducts monthly tours featuring unique and special treasures of the Museum.  The tours are the first Wednesday of each month at 10am and offer guests an intimate encounter with a select few of the Lightner's eclectic relics.

April’s Curator’s Tour will focus on the evolution of women’s undergarments and highlight Victorian fashion trends. This talk will seek to “bust” some myths about the dangers of corset-wearing and social extremes ladies of the 19th century sought to achieve.  Elizabeth Graham, docent and textile guru, will assist Barry Myers in this entertaining and thought provoking tour.  All unmentionables will be mentioned.

Tours are included in the price of admission and will begin in the front lobby of the Museum at 10am the first Wednesday of each month.  Admission is free for St. Johns County residents with valid identification.

An opportunity to meet Mr. Myers, along with an interactive tour, gives local residents and tourists alike an opportunity to learn the history of the building and to explore more deeply the Museum’s collections.

Donations are appreciated and will be accepted after the tour.

The Lightner Museum is a non-profit cultural institution sustained by the generous support of individuals, businesses and sponsors.

Hustle your bustle to the Lightner Museum’s Curator’s tour!
