Exhibition

Step into Old Government House and enter the opulent 1920s world of the Honourable Miss Phryne Fisher and her crime fighting associates. Based on the novels of Australian author Kerry Greenwood, the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries series has captured the imagination of Australia.

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.”
Essie Davis on playing Miss Phryne Fisher

The Miss Fisher’s Costume Exhibition will open daily (10am – 4pm) from 15 March – 19 June 2016 at Old Government House, Parramatta.

The costumes have been generously made available by Marion Boyce and Every Cloud Productions.
