The Textile Museum (TextileMuseum)

The Textile Museum was established in 1925 by collector and connoisseur George Hewitt Myers to expand public knowledge and appreciation—locally, nationally, and internationally—of the artistic merits and cultural importance of the world's textiles through scholarship, exhibitions, and educational programs.

Today, its collections of more than 19,000 textiles and related objects represent five millennia and five continents, including cultures from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and the indigenous peoples of the Americas.

In March 2015, The Textile Museum reopened as part of the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum. Located in the heart of GW's Foggy Bottom Campus, the new museum complex showcases the collections of The Textile Museum and the university, including the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection.
