“learn the importance of hats!”

There are five different collections in The Hat Museum--vintage hats, men’s hats, novelty hats, hundreds of retro “today” hats and international hats. The rooms of this 1910 Craftsman-style home have become display venues for each of these collections. Hats range from the common (souvenir hats) to the rare (a London straw top hat) to the very funny (a Thanksgiving table hat that “sings”). Nurse’s cap, Sherlock Holmes’ deerstalker, elaborate Victorian creations, vintage Stetsons are all here in this dramatic cross section of favorite headgear. There is something here for everyone. For the serious hat collector there are designer hats: Otto Lucas, Eric Javits, Kokin and Lilly Dache and Schiaparelli. You’ll see the evolution of hats, learn why they were originally not a fashion statement and you can discover how the importance of hats permeated the language. “To throw your hat in the ring.” “My hat’s off to you.” “I’ll eat my hat.” “With hat in hand.”
