Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art 

The Costume and Textiles collection holds about 2,500 textile objects and 5,000 costumes and accessories, ranging in time from Coptic to Contemporary, in size from thimbles to tapestries, and representing every continent. Many objects cross curatorial lines, like African American story quilts, Native American baskets, and contemporary fiber art. The department stages two exhibitions a year, rotating historic and contemporary costume with textiles. Strong point: Ballets Russes costumes.
