Designed to foster the study and appreciation of art, history, and culture, this 46,000-square-foot LEED Gold-certified museum facility opened in March 2015 on the campus of George Washington University. Galleries dedicated for The Textile Museum showcase weavings, carpets, and tapestries that date from 3000 BC to the present. Rotating exhibits are taken from a permanent collection of 19,000 rugs, textiles, and related objects, including Coptic and pre-Columbian textiles, Kashmir embroidery, and Turkmen tribal rugs. Also within this impressive building are the Arthur D. Jenkins Library for the Textile Arts, a museum shop, and galleries displaying art from the university's collection. This new building is linked to the renovated Woodhull House, which holds the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection, 1,000 maps, photographs, books, newspapers, manuscripts and other artifacts that document Washington, D.C.'s history from the 18th- to the mid-20th century. The museum offers a dynamic range of lectures, tours, and activities that explore the textile arts.
