A small museum with a large gift shop, it is, as you might guess, dedicated to textiles. Though they're not always on display, the museum has in its holdings some 12,000 objects from 200 countries around the world, some up to 2,000 years old. Artifacts include beautiful clothing, carpets, tapestries, ceremonial cloths, quilting and knitting, weaving, embroidery, and screen-printing. There is an interactive area where kids can play games and touch fibers. Free tours Sundays at 2pm.
