Washington DC’s fantastic Textile Museum is as much a hub for events as a museum. With rugs, carpets, and fabrics from all over the world, the museum is rooted in the collection of Oriental carpets collected by George Hewitt Myers.

The Textile Museum moved to The George Washington University in March 2015 forming part of the new GW University Museum complex. With increased exhibition space and a classroom for exploring textile techniques, the Museum can now exhibit even more of its international collection.
