Signature Programs



While our museum remains closed due to COVID-19, you can still access some of our popular programs in a virtual format. Join us online for regular Fashion on Film discussions, Rug and Textile Appreciation Mornings, and other special offerings.  Our other program series—including family days and Ask a Curator, Ask a Conservator—are temporarily suspended.    

D.C. Mondays

Join local authors, researchers, and community members online for lively discussions about Washington, D.C.’s history, politics, culture, and more. Interested in presenting at a D.C. Monday? Submit your program idea

Fashion on Film

Curated documentary and feature films explore the world of fashion, design, sustainability, and global textile traditions. Watch the films at home, and then join in virtual group discussions led by special guests.

Rug and Textile Appreciation Mornings

Collectors and researchers discuss textile topics and display examples from their personal holdings. You are invited to submit related pieces to share during the program. This series is organized in memory of Textile Museum Trustee Harold M. Keshishian.
