The Hat Museum in Portland is the largest hat museum in the United States, where you can see the evolution through the ages of this most essential accessory.

If you have an interest in fashion (or history, as a matter of fact), the Hat Museum will take you from the beginning of the hat's history to the modern ages. The tour guide is an actual milliner (hat maker), so he knows what he's talking about.

The hats look fabulous, and most of them have been designed by some pretty famous names, like Oscar de la Renta or Borsalino.

Address:
1928 SE Ladd Ave, Portland, OR 97214, USA

Price:
$15, but you need to make a reservation

Opening Hours:
10 am - 6 pm
