Ce vei face

You will be greeted by a guide dressed in early 1900's attire and be personally-guided on an in-depth excursion through 200 years of men’s and women’s hats. You will leave this experience armed with enough information to speak confidently with others on the subject of hats. This diverse assemblage of nearly 2,000 hats has something for all visitors: historical hats dating as far back as 1820; hats from all eras; hats from Hollywood movies and famous designers; and hats made from a variety of materials, including cork, horsehair, mushrooms, feathers, silk, and intricately spun straw.

You will hear a series of vibrant, interesting stories that take them on a chronological tour throughout history. You will gain knowledge of how history and hats have gone hand-in-hand, why dramatic changes in the style and function of hats have occurred, and reasons for the decline of hat-wearing. You will also learn of the massive industries that have come and gone with the evolution of hats, and that that evolution includes interesting and obscure facts (ie: a few women developing a way to prevent hats from causing the extinction of birds and leading to the establishment of the Audubon Society.)

My all-consuming interest in hats started at an early age. I still have the first hat that I wore to church as a child. As a youngster, I used to entertain myself by making large intricate hats out of newspaper.

I have pursued my passion for hats through collection and an intense interest in their origins and histories. My mission is two-fold: preserve these treasures and share my knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm for hats with as many people as possible.

My role is as caretaker of these wonderful pieces of history, left behind by the most interesting characters.

The National Museum is located just 7 minutes from downtown Portland in one of Oregon’s most unusual historic homes, the Ladd-Reingold House. It has a 100+ year old legacy of milliners and hat fanciers.

This museum kept popping up whenever we searched for things to do while we were in Portland so we made a reservation to check it out and we’re so happy we did! This experience was incredible, even if you don’t like hats or have no opinion of them at all! DO NOT miss this opportunity!

Highly recommend this experience! I loved Lu Ann's story telling about hats through the different eras, and the explanations of how hats have changed over the years with changing times and technologies. I have gained a new respect for fancy old hats and the people who wear them. Can't wait to show off my new hat knowledge!!

I own exactly one hat aside from baseball caps or winter knit hats, this was amazing. Seriously. I didn't check "once in a life time experience" because we will likely be back

WOW this experience was amazing. I came in just wanting to learn more about hats and their history but ended up falling in love with hats and the concept of them. Time to add some to my wardrobe! HATS.

We were pleasantly surprised by this experience despite my foolish decision to book this at 10 am on new year's day, much to the annoyance of my companion.
