You can learn a lot about how fabrics are made here, especially silk used for Japanese kimono and obi. Many exhibits are interactive and staff can show you how to work the old machines. The building itself is also interesting. It uses a special set of windows to provide natural light necessary for working with differentiated colors. You can also see how traditional indigo dye is used. If you want, you can try dyeing a piece of fabric yourself. In another part of the facilities, textiles are still being produced.

There are two textile museums in Kiryu. The "yukari" is the larger one. A very large number of looms and weaving tools are on display. There are guided tours in Japanese that include the demonstration of some of the equipment, for example the unwinding of the silk from a cocoon. There is a room for dying and you can observe multiple Jacquard looms in operation. Things produced on these looms are for sale in the gift shop.
