Castle Dracula, or Dracula's Castle, was located on the Nickels' Midway pier at Cedar Avenue and the Boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ. It was a combination walk-through and boat ride. The castle was built in 1977 by the Nickels family on top of a pre-existing old mill ride. The old mill, which was originally constructed in 1919, was transformed into the dungeon boat ride, and the upper level became known as Castle Dracula.

This Costume Institute exhibition explores the aesthetic development and cultural implications of mourning fashions of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Approximately thirty ensembles, many of which are being exhibited for the first time, reveal the impact of high-fashion standards on the sartorial dictates of bereavement rituals as they evolved over a century.

The thematic exhibition is organized chronologically and features mourning dress from 1815 to 1915, primarily from The Costume Institute's collection, including mourning gowns worn by Queen Victoria and Queen Alexandra. The calendar of bereavement's evolution and cultural implications is illuminated through women's clothing and accessories, showing the progression of appropriate fabrics from mourning crape to corded silks, and the later introduction of color with shades of gray and mauve.
