An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the American Textile History Museum in Lowell, MA, tells America's story through the art, history, and science of textiles. In addition to our core exhibition, Textile Revolution: An Exploration through Space and Time, ATHM presents ongoing and rotating special exhibitions, exploring the world through the lens of textiles, from the fashions of Hollywood and Princess Diana to the haunting personal stories of Vietnam and the Civil War. ATHM holds the world's largest and most important collections of tools, spinning wheels, hand looms, and early production machines, as well as more than five million pieces of textile prints, fabric samples, rolled textiles coverlets, and costumes. At the American Textile History Museum, we have dedicated more than 50 years to preserving the past and shaping the future. Our collections, exhibitions, education programs, research library, and on-line catalogue provide a fascinating in-depth look at the world through the art, history, and science of textiles.
