What we wear has meaning. Our clothing, accessories, and body modifications communicate important information about who we are, what we do, and what we believe. On this virtual tour, you will engage with some of the many stories told by the jewelry, uniforms, regalia, and other remarkable objects in the special exhibition, The Stories We Wear.

This spectacular array of adornment tells stories spanning 2,500 years of human history, from athletics in the ancient Mediterranean to tattoos in 19th century Borneo. Others, like a gown from American contralto Marian Anderson, are from closer to home, highlighting figures related to the city of Philadelphia. As you are transported near and far, you will find many opportunities to reflect on the stories you wear.
