    Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, the American Textile History Museum tells America's story through the art, history and science of textiles. In the museum's newly renovated, interactive exhibit - "Textile Revolution: An Exploration through Space and Time" - visitors can spin, weave, recycle, and design their way through textile history - from the pre-colonial era into the 21st century and beyond. ATHM holds an extraordinary library and one of the world's largest and most important publicly held collections of tools, spinning wheels, hand looms and early production machines. The Museum's textile collections include more than five million pieces of textile prints, fabric samples, rolled textiles coverlets and costumes. It has been accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1973.
