The Textile Museum in D.C. houses over 19,000 objects dating from 3,000 B.C.E. to the present. This collection is a must for all who revel in the artistry and craftsmanship of woven art. The museum is housed in the former home of founder George Hewitt Myers in Washington, D.C.’s stately Kalorama neighborhood just off Dupont Circle, making it a convenient visit for all from Residences on the Avenue. The collection is vast: Egyptian Mamluk rugs from the 1400s; carpets from India, Spain, Turkey, Anatolia, and Caucasia; pre-Columbian Peruvian weavings; and pieces from Asia, India, Persia, Turkey, China, Japan, and Africa. The Textile Museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays, and admission is a suggested $8 donation.
