An extraordinarily elegant small museum that few Washingtonians have heard of, the Textile Museum is fabric heaven. Everything is very thoughtfully exhibited (to the extent that it's actually a worthwhile stop for more than just textile buffs), and this hidden museum happens to have one of the finest collection of fabrics in the world. There's also a lovely garden in the back. Free introductory tours Sa-Su at 1:30PM.
