Best Costume Goes to… is a Hunt Museum exhibition, in conjunction with The Irish Costume Archive Project, showcasing costumes from Irish films and major television productions. The exhibition will display costumes filmed in Ireland or abroad but with Irish talent involved. The costumes will be mounted on mannequins and the exhibition will be backed up by sketches, film stills and film clips and additional ephemera. The exhibition tells a story of the relationship between the actor and their costume and the growth of the Irish film industry. 

Costumes from 19 films and tv series will be on display, represented by 33 costumes, of which some have been Oscar nominated. This exhibition gives the opportunity to view costumes from films and TV such as The Favourite, The Quiet Man, Braveheart, Vikings, and more. Visitors will experience the narrative of costumes, understanding not just the history but the social history of a time, be that contemporary or in the past; how people lived, not only how they dressed.
