Be Persuaded - A Jane Austen Experience

Fri 7 April to Sun 9 July | 11:00AM to 4:00PM

Venue: Kyneton Museum

The Kyneton Museum is a fascinating place for the entire family to explore, with changing exhibitions throughout the year.

Be Persuaded is a rare and wonderful exhibition bringing Jane Austen to life in original fashion of the era. The exhibition follows Jane’s life from growing up in the 18th century into the era most associated with her—the Regency era, at the beginning of the 19th century. Be Persuaded features rare fashion, accessories and ephemera from the 18th century through to the 1840s when Jane’s beloved sister Cassandra died. Pieces such as these are rarely on display outside of major museums—an 18th century silk gown, diaphanous Empire line frocks, boots, bonnets, parasols and more.

This exhibition is from the collection of Dressing Australia Museum of Costume.
