The museum is currently closed.
We are defining the field of textile studies and conservation through our publications, scholarly programs and academic collaborations. Scholars can take advantage of our online resources, as well as materials in our library and study center.
Access our scholarship or support your own research with these free resources on textiles.
Scholars and students can make an appointment to study works in our collections.
In addition to our curatorial staff, the museum is supported by research associates who enhance scholarship related to The Textile Museum Collection.
