*Research and Collections Center Special Programs Room, 1011 East Ash Street, Springfield

Tales from the Vault program moderated by Erika Holst, Curator of Decorative Arts and  History

Free and open to the public

Underneath every beautiful Victorian gown was a complicated set of underpinnings to support it. See examples from the ISM's collection and learn about corsets, chemises, petticoats, and hoops, as well as men's undergarments.

"Tales from the Vault" is a collaborative program hosted by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Illinois State Museum which allows the public to discover some of the treasures from these institutions' collections. Each program will include the chance to view an artifact or document not normally on display, commentary by a staff member or local scholar, and a chance for group discussion. Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch. All programs are free and open to the public. For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696. 

*The Collections Center cannot currently be reached from Ash Street due to construction. You can access the facility's entrance on 10 1/2 Street from Laurel Street.
