During the month of August the Goulbourn Museum will be showcasing a new exhibition at the Stittsville Public Library. This exhibit is all about the history of hats and explains how and why the fashions have changed over the decades. On display is an array of photographs, accessories and of course hats from the Museum’s artefact collection. The museum hopes you’ll have the chance to visit their exhibit at the Library and, if you do, please leave a comment in their guest book! (via Facebook)
