The Textile Museum’s new George Washington University home unites historic fabric and D.C. history

In 2011, the Textile Museum merged with the George Washington University Museum. Its collection now shares a 53,000-square-foot complex with the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana collection — maps, letters and drawings documenting D.C.’s history — plus research space and a gift shop.

’The core mission of the Textile Museum continues,’ museum director John Wetenhall says. ‘But it’s become wider and more generous. The galleries are more than twice as large as they were, and we have included far more context and interactivity.’
