PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- What could an anthropological museum have to say about fashion?

As TaRhonda Thomas found out, quite a lot - over two thousand years worth.

The current exhibit at The Penn Museum in University City shows fashion through the ages in The Stories We Wear.

On display are outfits and objects covering five themes, looking at outfits worn for everything from performance to sports. Ticketing is included in the price of admission to the museum, and the exhibit will be on display through June 12, 2022.
