  • How to book

    We will refer you to the Experience Antwerp booking platform. There you can book the guide and accompanying tickets.

A baseball cap, a sweatshirt, jogging bottoms or trainers: you've probably got at least one of these in your wardrobe at home, haven't you? But did you know that these items of clothing were first sold as sportswear, mostly from the 20th century onwards?

Just like sports, sports clothes have changed a lot over the years. Did you know that at the very first Olympic Games in Ancient Greece, men competed naked and women were not allowed to take part at all? Or that sport was an activity for people from the upper class? And that the arrival of the bicycle resulted in many changes and had a major effect with regard to women's rights?

During this project, we will travel back in time to discover the evolution of sportswear.

It is clear that fashion, clothing and therefore sportswear is always changing. Many styles of the past return in today's fashion. Obviously, much has changed, but what exactly? That is the question we ask ourselves during this project and to which we try to find answers through questions, statements and assignments.

The fun quiz at the end of this time trip has no more surprises for you now!
