Victoria Mansion is fortunate to have over 90% of the house’s original collection, including samples of the beautiful, intricate textiles from nearly every room. These delicate objects are usually housed in our climate-controlled textile storage room on the third floor of the museum and are rarely on public view.

Our community of Mansion Members, supporters, and visitors frequently express interest and curiosity in the textiles, and this May, we’re planning a special, limited exhibition of select objects!

National Textiles Day falls on May 3rd, which coincides with our 2024 regular season opening weekend. Textiles from the collection will remain on view in the Mansion’s rooms from Friday, May 3rd through Sunday, May 5th during regular tours. Tours run every 20 minutes on the :10s, :30s, and :50s of each hour (first tour 10:10am, final tour 3:50pm), and reservations are highly encouraged to ensure entry.

Plan your visit online any time at victoriamansion.org/your-visit, or give us a call at (207) 772-4841 with any questions.
