“What to Wear to Different Types of Art Exhibits and Museums” is a blog post that describes different art types and what to wear to them. The post is divided into sections, one for each type of art. Each section starts with a title and then has a list of clothes to wear at the different type of exhibit or museum.
Art exhibits and museums are some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. They are also among the most interesting places to visit, since they allow you to view pieces of history that you would normally never get a chance to see.
However, visiting an art exhibit can sometimes be a little intimidating. You might not be sure what kind of exhibit it is or how to dress appropriately. Hopefully, this list will help you navigate your way through the maze of exhibits and museums.

When going to an art exhibit or museum, it is important to know what the appropriate attire is. It is important to be in the right frame of mind for an exhibit, which can be different from another. You don’t want to be going around a nude art show in a suit and tie!
It is also important to be aware of how much skin you are showing. Many art exhibits are not meant to be seen by children and if you are wearing very short shorts or a tube top, you may offend people who go there with their children.
T-Shirt: This is the easiest way to go. This can be worn to almost any exhibit. Jeans: Another easy option. While jeans may not be appropriate for more highbrow art exhibits, they are acceptable at most museums and exhibits. Dressy Shorts: Blue jean shorts with a dressy shirt can also work great for most museums and art exhibits. Jeans and nice shorts: While this might not be acceptable at highbrow art exhibits, it will work for most other types of museum/art exhibits. Skirt: A skirt with a nice blouse or dressy top will work for almost any museum/art exhibit. Dressy pants or jeans: This can also work well for almost
Art exhibits and museums are a great way to spend an afternoon or evening, but first you need to know how to dress for them. If you are going to a gallery opening, there will be no dress code. You can dress like you would for a regular night out with friends. If you are going to be spending the day at an art museum, it is a good idea to dress in layers so that you can adjust your clothing throughout the day. This will keep you comfortable as the temperature changes and will allow you to easily remove clothing if you get too hot.
Tours are usually free, so consider bringing a packed lunch or buying something once you arrive at the destination. While tours can be very informative, they can also take away from time spent looking at the art itself. Choose a tour that has additional features related to art and not just information about artists and their lives.
A good rule of thumb is to dress as though you were going out for dinner at a nice restaurant after visiting an exhibit or museum. Conservative business casual is appropriate for most art exhibits and museums, while more contemporary venues usually have more relaxed dress codes.
If you are unsure of what your destination’s dress code is, do some research before hand so that you don’t end up under
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery, The Museum of Modern art, The Guggenheim or most any other famous art museum is not the place to wear your favorite pair of jeans and t-shirt. Even shorts are frowned upon. You wouldn’t wear a bathing suit to the opera. It is just not the thing to do.
Turtlenecks may be acceptable at museums but if you are going to a Broadway show or a play that calls for formal attire you should probably wear a suit. A nice pair of slacks and blazer would be appropriate at an exhibit that is not as formal as something at the Met but still requires more than your favorite jeans and t-shirts. When I went to an exhibit at the Guggenheim in NYC there was a more casual area where folks were walking around in shorts, flip-flops and sneakers.
Other places that are less formal but still require more form than casual are sporting events and the ballet. Sporting events vary widely depending on which sport you’re going to but when I went to see the ballet I could wear jeans but it was much better if I wore a nice top with dark pants or skirt.
The type of art exhibits you go to will determine what you should wear and
Art exhibits come in many different styles and themes. You should dress for each type of exhibit with these styles and themes in mind.
Are you going to a photography exhibit? That’s a great place to wear black, white and gray clothing. Don’t wear flashy colors or an outfit that will draw too much attention to you. Keep it simple, yet chic.
Are you going to an exhibit that is more of an interactive experience? Go for something a little more casual. Jeans or yoga pants are fine for this type of exhibit. If there is food involved, don’t worry about food getting on your clothes either.
Are you going to visit the art museum? This is still considered more formal than a photography exhibit or an interactive exhibit. The key here is to be comfortable but still look nice. No matter what style of clothes you have picked out, make sure your hair looks nice and your makeup is done well!
No matter where you are going or what kind of art exhibit it is, make sure that your attire compliments the type of art you are attending. Take note of the theme or style at the event and choose an outfit accordingly!
Art museums and art receptions may seem the same, but they are different and have different dress codes.
Art galleries are showing places, where the main purpose is to view the artwork. The decorations in these buildings are more simple, consisting of a few pieces of art. Galleries are usually located in cities and display contemporary artwork.
Art museums on the other hand, are more historical places, usually found in big cities as well. Museums are filled with works of art from all different periods throughout time. There will be more than one gallery in a museum building, with each gallery specializing in a specific period or area of art. Museum displays tend to be much more elaborate than gallery displays.*
When attending an art gallery opening, you should wear something that shows off your personal style without being too over the top or loud. Think about what makes you feel like yourself and go from there! If you’re unsure about what to wear, keep it simple.* If you’d like some suggestions for outfits that would be perfect for an art gallery opening party, check out my blog post.*
If you’re planning on visiting a museum for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary celebration or even just because it’s a great day to visit the museum, have fun dressing up! You
