The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History opens the doors to its history collection with two new temporary exhibits, "A Century of Clothing: Circa 1850s through 1950s" and "The Transformation of Weaponry," which bring items from the Museum’s history collection to life.

"A Century of Clothing: Circa 1850s through 1950s" examines 100 years of clothing from the depths of the museum’s collection. From children’s clothing, to adult formal wear, to military uniforms, the exhibit examines the craftsmanship and artistry of each item. With over 28 different items displayed, visitors can see the direct correlations between historical events and the changes in human fashion.

"The Transformation of Weaponry" explores the materials, processes, and changes made to weapons and tools. The exhibit includes different weapons from as early as 1200 BCE (Before Common Era) to 1918. Highlights include a Javanese Kris, a wavy blade used by Indonesian cultures, as well as a katana and a wakizashi, two types of swords from Japan. From stone, to bone, to iron and bronze, guests can compare the history of these human tools used for hunting, protection, and defense.
