The Textile Museum is my favorite museum on return visits to Washington. Something interesting is always going on there, and the gift shop is fabulous.


My review is that the Washington Post website cannot be relied upon to get basic facts correct. PS Check the days of operation with the Museum itself.

Touching cloth 8/16/2005

If you think an entire museum devoted to textiles sounds like a snooze, you're not wrong, but you're not entirely right, either. The blankets and wraps are incredibly beautiful, and some of their special exhibits (e.g., various kinds of woven bags from around the world) give you a sense of the strangeness of everyday things. Their gift shop is good for unusual, if pricy, presents; they also have a beautiful outdoor garden in back that they should rent for weddings and mitzvahs. more
