My hobby is textiles in all it's forms and my hope was that this would be a good place to feed my passion. Most of the museum was of interest but not a lot charged my imagination. Maybe my timing was off by arriving before the summer exhibits were in place. Possibly later in the year the exibits would have... More

A colourful journey through weaving and textile. Even when not specifically interested in textile. A lively exhibition with old and (very) modern weaving stations. The soft woolen scarfs sold in the shop are a bit pricey, but worth every cent.

The old building is wonderful. I expected more information about the history of it all. There's a little, but it's mostly new exhibitions from new designers and craftsmen. That was nice too, but I think it's more exiting if you're into that kind of art. Else, it's a lot of the same. The "TextielLab" was great though. There you can... More

This is a very nice museum giving you a good idea of the history of the Tilburg textile industry. On top of that, it gives you an attractrive view on modern textile industry and art. The fact it is located in an old textile industry building and it exhibits a host of working textile machine really adds to the picture.

Museum in an old textile factory in a street where we had lots of different textile factories in the last century. In this museum you can find things for textile how it was made in the last century until nowadays , and how the workers lived in Tilburg in the 1900's.

This textile museum treats all aspects of textile: It is located in an old textile factory and has many big old machines on display. There is a section about modern textile techniques, for example incorporating light into textiles. Plus some temporary exhibitions. Well worth a visit.

On the ground floor there are old and modern machines used to produce fabrics. The contrast of old and modern ones are really strong. I though textile lab is for travelers to produce fabrics with whatever pattern they like. But it turns out that it's the place some experts work. On the first floor there are collections of curtain and... More

The rich collection of the TextielMuseum is all about old and new textiles. A small heritage section on making blankets and a huge lab for you as visitor to experience and discover. A must in Tilburg. The textile Museum also features a design shop and has an own label "by TextielMuseum" This label presents an exclusive range of household textiles... More
