It's the most common question we receive: "aren't you hot in those clothes?"

Well, yes... when it's 100 degrees outside, everyone is hot! Join us on Saturday, July 20th to learn about historic strategies of staying cool in hot weather, how period clothing helps fend off overheating, and what activities can be done (or not done) during the hottest days of the summer.

Staff will be stationed in our outdoor exhibit, the Villa de Austin, from 9am to 4pm (extreme heat permitting) to talk about these strategies!
