Victoria Mansion is fortunate to have over 90% of the house’s original collection, including samples of 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, as well as Portland’s First Friday Art Walk. Join us from 5-8pm for a FREE self-paced tour of Victoria Mansion on Friday, May 3rd, with a rare chance to view original 1860s textiles exhibited in the rooms for which they were originally designed. Docents will be stationed throughout the house to interpret the rooms and select objects.

Due to capacity limitations inside Victoria Mansion, we highly recommend reserving an entry time. Admission is free for all visitors during the First Friday Art Walk, but reservations are encouraged. Please note that food/drinks/gum, smoking/vaping, large bags, strollers, and pets are not permitted inside Victoria Mansion for the safety of our collections, guests, staff and volunteers. Non-flash, still photography is allowed in the Mansion, but we do not permit selfie sticks, tripods, flash photography, or video recording/streaming of any kind. If you have any questions about your visit, please see our FAQs or give us a call at (207) 772-4841.
