Can you picture Don Draper of Mad Men in sweatpants? Or Sheldon Cooper without his iconic superhero t-shirts? Costumes play a huge role in making our television shows feel realistic and help transport us to a certain time or place.

The FIDM Museum has a collection of television costumes on display from August 2, 2016October 15, 2016. Hours are 10am–5pm, Tuesday through Saturday. The event is free and open to the public.
