Textile Care & Display



The Textile Museum has been one of the most trusted authorities in textile conservation since 1925. Professionals around the world seek our advice on best practices in textile care and display in museums and galleries. Our conservators have also developed videos and guidelines that you can follow for your personal textile collection. Explore our online resources, or bring your textiles to one of our Ask a Curator, Ask a Conservator programs for a consultation with our expert staff. For those outside Washington, D.C., the American Institute for Conservation's "find a conservator" service can locate conservators in your area.
