The Costume Museum and Rudi’s Tea Room are now closed for the season. Thank you for visiting and we look forward to welcoming you again next summer.
The Cary Mews houses the Costume Museum and Rudi’s Tea Room.
The Costume Museum features a series of changing themes which showcase its more than forty costumes from the 1860’s to the present. It also houses vintage accessories, period artifacts, Government House memorabilia, and generous donations of family heirlooms from the public.
Visitors will also see the historic landau carriage used In 1901 by the Duke and Duchess of York and Cornwall (later King George V and Queen Mary) on their tour of Victoria.
Rudi’s Tea Room features a selection of treats provided by Government House and during the summer, seasonal greens from the vegetable garden.
