Textile Museum

Textile Museum Review

The museum showcases weavings, carpets, and tapestries that date from 3000 BC to the present. Rotating exhibits are taken from a permanent collection of 19,000 historic and ethnographic items that include Coptic and pre-Columbian textiles, Kashmir embroidery, and Turkmen tribal rugs. The museum has a gift shop packed with handmade textiles from around the world, books, and clothing accessories. During construction of a new building on the campus of George Washington University, the S Street location will be open limited hours until the fall of 2014.
