Because you can't currently visit the Textile Room at the Museum in person, members of our curatorial team thought they would bring the Textile Room to you!

Did you spot the Amish Log Cabin quilt at the start of the film? The blocks of this purple, green, and red quilt have been sewn in a Barn Raising arrangement. The light and dark bands radiate.

Head gardener Andy is giving a speech in New York tonight about our new Mount Vernon garden, alongside Dean Norton the Director for Horticulture at Mount Vernon in Virginia. He sent us this snap from the #empirestatebuilding. We're not jealous at all....
Good luck Andy!

This incredible bust is inspired by the story that after being elected President in 1860, Lincoln caught sight of a double image of himself in a mirror with one a healthy, happy image, the second a ghostly pale image. Bust included in 'Face to Face with Angela Conner’ More deets here: https://bit.ly/2OVxk9n Photo by John Bulmer 🇺🇸

Happy Birthday Ma'am. Ten years ago, for her 80th Birthday, The Queen commissioned a portrait from Angela Conner, the artist behind our fabulous kinetic sculpture (kinetic means movement). Or in other words, this incredible piece of art which was a gift to our town from Sainsbury's, is by a 'By Royal Appointment' artist, and we're about to throw it in a skip.
