Fascinating look at wool textile production from the past, current damask production in action, artist labs, fabulous gift shop and decent sunny cafe. We had lunch. I came away with new knowledge, a few dishtowels, a birthday gift for a pal and a nice lunch. My husband accompanied expecting to be bored and was very happy that he came along.

Nice museum with information on old ways to create textiles, but it also shows the latest techniques. You also find temporary exhibitions.

I did not think I would like it as much as I did. There was so much to see and it touched all five senses. They were not just textiles, but amazing works of art.

The museum with in site textile factory creates a holistic feeling and sensation about ongoing creative industry with its historical foundation in one go. It's about the process, products, past achievements and future development of textile worldwide and especially in Holland.

I loved this museum, I am interested in textiles and although it was really good to see the old machines, too see the new technology working was what really excited me. The weaving looms were making the tea towels that are sold in the shop and machine embroidery was being demonstrated on different materials. I think I will have to... More

An eye opener, well worth a detour! I learned a lot about the blanket making process/industry - involving collecting and treating wool and huge and very noisy weaving looms, resulting in lovely coloured blankets. Men were weavers, women were spinning. Seems global division of labour? Now it's all computerized. To offset the past, there was a lovely exhibit of contemporary... More

A nice peek into Tilburg's textile past as well as future! Great exhibitions showing the looms, and giving a taste of the processes behind making Damask cloth.

In addition to the museum, lovely cafe, and amazing giftshop (where they DID take... More
