A new museum is opening this weekend in downtown Washington showcasing a wide variety of art, history and culture through ancient textiles and a significant collection of maps and documents on the history of the U.S. capitalm.
AP reported that George Washington University is opening the $33 million complex Saturday on its downtown campus where two museums will share one facility. The six-story complex becomes the new home for Washington's 90-year-old Textile Museum and its collection of artifacts, along with a new museum about the capital city's history.
The opening comes just months after George Washington University also acquired one of the nation's oldest art museums, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and its art school, demonstrating a major commitment to build a much larger profile as a school for the arts.
