Our new exhibition explores the evolution of the Quaker testimony of simplicity and how it has been interpreted through the lens of clothing, from 1652 to present. Enhanced with examples from our own collection and the voices of Quakers themselves, we explore the question – what does simplicity mean to you?

Discover the hidden stories behind our collection’s unique items, freshly brought out for the first time, as they illustrate and contextualize the Quaker commitment to simplicity. Engage with captivating interactives and activities that will bring the experience to life.

We invite you to reflect upon the timeless principles that have shaped Quaker beliefs throughout history and continue to inspire us today. Explore how Quakers view their testimony of simplicity in the modern world and gain insights into how it influences their daily lives.
