It is fascinating to see a complete different type of museum in such a good way to be shown. It is not only beaituful but also takes you through the history of the fashion which is incredible. The big machines and you can also experience them, by "cycling"on one for example making a big piece of textile!

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 designed by top designers and produced at the TextielLab. Amongst them designs by Viktor&Rolf, Studio Wieki Somers, Kiki van Eijk, Raw Color, Studio Formafantasma, Christien Meindertsma, Leendert Masselink, Mara Skujeniece, Pieke Bergmans, Studio Minale Maeda, Marc Mulders, Peter Struycken, Glithero, Kitty van der Mijll Dekker and Ineke Hans.

This wonderful museum is situated in an old textile factory. You can see how beautiful tablecloths and other household items were weaved. Everything has been put together in a modern setting. The history of weaving is very well explained and is complemented with Dutch design in textile by top designers.

Kinda put off writing this review as I didn't really know what to think of this museum. I am still in two minds, actually.

On one hand it is really large and it has a great collection of objects, separated in several smaller exhibitions. Some topics are quite nice; one was about lace and couture dresses, one was on the production of woven blankets and they have a steam engine too. Others didn't impress me that much. The one on damask felt a bit empty and unfinished. I am not entirely sure what they wanted to get across. The same went for the exhibition 'rode draden. The museum also has a lab, a library and some spaces, of which I didn't really see the purpose. The whole atmosphere just felt a bit off to me; dark and unfinished. The library felt like we weren't really supposed to be there. Also, the route through the museum wasn't clear to me at all.

Facilities are alright; toilets etc are clean, there is a little restaurant and a gift shop.

Fees are as follows:
- 12,5 euros adults
- 4 euros, kids aged 13-18
- free, kids up to 12 and card holders.

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 triggered my 'WOW' reaction. I hope so, we do need places to show us how the fabric of our lives is created.

An enjoyable experience and educational too. Blanket production, art and design exhibitions as well as a 1906 steam engine, which unfortunately was not running when I visited. Altogether worthwhile.

Visited the museum and was surprised of the technology and the level of skill shown in the exhibitions. There is also a textile lab where artists can come and produce textile works of art. Nice people working there also. To be recomended if you are interested in textiles. Small and cozy café with av very good mint tea.

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.

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.
