This museum was so interesting. It went on and on with the history and development of different fibers--like cotton, wool, and linen as well as how weaving developed through the years. the exhibition covering costume design and clothing throughout the years was so interesting. AND there s a great restaurant in the museum.

It has a great design; in particular the giant mannequins on which the visitor can project different tissues, are... More

its bit far from the centrum but they have strassen bahn (tram) to get here from the centrum. the building is just like industrial building that they use for gallery, they have nice collection of how textil industry are before and after the war in Augsburg. if you lucky they have a work shop for knitting etc.
