Featured shows cluster objects together thoughtfully to create unique displays, while the overall mission of the museum is to unite textiles from across cultures to explore expressions of individual, cultural, political and social identity. The facility will also showcase the Textile Museum’s world-renowned historic collections, and will present special exhibitions covering everything from contemporary textiles to fashion.

The President Woodrow Wilson House opens a window onto the private life of the nation's 28th president. This home on S Street is where the president settled down after leading the nation through World War I, creating the League of Nations, and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Architect Waddy Butler Wood designed the home and gardens in the Georgian Revival style with a marble entryway and grand staircase, book-lined study, and a solarium overlooking the garden. Preserved the way it looked on the year of his death, President Wilson's home contains remarkable memorabilia from his life, including a Steinway piano from the White House and a mosaic he received from Pope Benedict XV. The house has now been a museum for half a century and is open to the public.

The story of the descendants of the nation’s First Family is told at Tudor Place, an historic home hidden away on a Georgetown side street. The five-acre estate was the home of Martha and George Washington’s granddaughter Martha Parke Custis Peter. Five more generations of the family lived here before it became a National Historic Landmark in the 1980s, and now the notable home contains more of George and Martha’s memorabilia than anywhere outside of Mount Vernon. But because the home was occupied by members of the Washington family for nearly 200 years, its riches span the centuries, from original keepsakes handed down by Martha herself to more current pieces that tell the family’s rich history. The extensive gardens are particularly lovely in the spring, when many of the period flowers bloom.

Anyone who visits Dumbarton House follows in the footsteps of the country’s fourth First Lady, Dolley Madison, who took shelter there as the War of 1812 raged and the British army edged closer to the White House. Since her visit, the Americans have defeated the British, and the house has been transformed into a museum with a collection of more than 1,000 historical artifacts that transport visitors back to the United States’ formative years. Once inhabited by Joseph Nourse, the first Register of the Treasury, from 1804 through 1813, the home showcases the family’s documents, such as journals, as well as furniture, silver, and other federal period decorative art from the turn of the 19th century. The house itself was built in the same period, exemplifying the clean lines and symmetry that characterized the era’s Federal architecture, with wings on either side of its main block.
