Located off the usual tourist track in the Kalorama neighborhood, this small museum is dedicated to fostering an appreciation for the artistic value of textiles from around the world. Originally founded by George Hewitt Myers in 1925, the Textile Museum is housed in two buildings, one of which is the former residence of the Myers family, built in 1913. The museum’s collection includes more than 19,000 pieces dating as far back as 3,000 B.C., with highlights including oriental rugs, Islamic textiles, and pre-Columbian Peruvian textiles. Past exhibitions include Constructed Color: Amish Quilts and Contemporary Japanese Fashion: The Mary Baskett Collection.
