Mission and Vision
The mission of the Textiles and Clothing Museum is to promote the scholarship and appreciation of historic and ethnic textiles and clothing, with an emphasis on visual and active learning.
The vision of the Textiles and Clothing Museum is to be the model of best practices for land-grant university collections. The museum is an asset to the Apparel, Merchandising, and Design program and the Apparel, Events, and Hospitality Management department. It demonstrates the land-grant mission of Iowa State University: to create and extend knowledge about design, production, distribution, promotions, and use of textiles and apparel for local, national, and international communities in a global context.
The museum offers public access to its collections and research activities. By appointment and under supervision, the collection is accessible to anyone with an interest in clothing and textiles.
