The museum is interesting if you like textile industry. You can see machines from across the ages, know some stories of the workers or look to several exhibitions.

Went there with my husband, and both of us got more than we expected from a museum - information on fabrics, on history, on design, on technics and much more, beautifully prestented. Also recommended for kids, they can join in and try out.

Having previously worked in the at the time world leading textile industry in Augsburg the museum depicts a great heritage and is interesting. They used an old derelict industrial building that once housed the worlds biggest weaving factory. Easy to reach from the centre, and...More
