Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising
The Avenir Museum, formerly the Historic Costume and Textiles Collection, is dedicated to exploring the aesthetic, social, cultural and physical significance of textiles, dress and interior furnishings.
FREE and open to the public, the museum includes two galleries, the Avenir Museum Gallery and the Gustafson Gallery, where objects are regularly exhibited and students have the opportunity to work with artifacts according to museum standards of care and handling. A temperature and humidity controlled storage facility houses over 13,000 artifacts that are actively used by faculty and students and available to outside scholars.
