This brand new exhibition features fabulous series three costumes and props. See up close the outfits worn by Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) and her cohorts – including Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page) and Aunt Prudence (Miriam Margolyes). Walk through the different sets and touch and feel the sumptuous fabrics. Try on replica costumes and interact with props and furniture from the show as you step deeper into Phryne’s world. Solve a crime by looking out for clues from Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. As you go upstairs, become part of the crew and go behind the scenes to discover the inspiration for the costumes and understand how they were made. You will even get the chance to design your own dress.
“As soon as I put on Phryne’s clothes I can adopt Phryne poses and promenade, and make an entry, feel confident and audacious… They just make me feel so good that I get away with things I could never pull off in my everyday life.”
