Costumes worn on the hit TV series Downton Abbey are now on show at Nuneaton Musuem.

The collection includes a purple gown worn by Dame Maggie Smith in her role as the grumpy Dowager Countess of Grantham, while also on show are a daring “pantaloon” outfit of Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay), the engagement frock of her sister Mary (Michelle Dockery) and an evening suit donned by Dan Stevens in his role as Matthew.

Representing the “downstairs” servants is a dress worn by Mrs Hughes the housekeeper and the uniform of Anna the maid.

Coun Ian Lloyd, portfolio holder for leisure and culture said: “We always aim to bring high quality exhibits to our museum that will be of interest to a broad range of visitors. This is certain to be one of our most popular exhibitions this year.”

Entry to the museum is free and the exhibition continues until September 15.


How seriously do TV viewers take what happens to the Crawleys and those in their sphere on Downton Abbey?

So seriously that, as the series’ creator and writer Julian Fellowes recently admitted to PEOPLE, he even gets yelled at “a bit” by members of the public when something they dislike takes place on the show.

“And they know it all,” the Oscar- and Emmy-winner, 63, said about the public’s reaction. “They have opinions that are better than mine.”
