Travels

Travels at Home and Aboard

This is a collection of our posts on the historic sites and museums that we've visited and profiled in a descriptive review.  One of our favorite pastimes is exploring out-of-the-way and little-known history- or fashion-related sites, museums, and exhibits, and it is our hope that in sharing these, we can help you, too, discover some extra-special and often-overlooked spots in history.
