Lots of English translations throughout was a definite positive and did convey a story but we wanted more. More of the worker's lives and more interaction. There is a room with videos of the site selectable in English or Polish but we didn't see any of it as a local had settled in for the afternoon with a couple of bags of crisps and was watching them all in Polish. They may have been informative but we will never know. We left her watching a Poltex model applying make up. There is a viewing terrace but were told that is closed for renovation. And, the precision balance they have is not set up right, the knife edges are not seated on their bearings!

Lodz owns its history to this factory. It is impossible to have a clue of Lodz without visiting this place. Moreover, the surrounding manufactura mall is a pleasant place. There are plenty of other activities you may enjoy, but visiting this museum is a must.

To understand Lodz it's important to know something about its history which is based on the textile industry. This museum gives some good insight's. Wish it were bigger but the admission price is tiny and very good value. Wouldn't recommend for small children, they won't understand what they are looking at. Best for adults who have a genuine interest in old Lodz and / or industrial heritage.

The importance of the textile industry to the growth and blossoming of Lodz is unquestioned. Thus, in order to understand Lodz it would be important to have a sense of what took place in this regard. While this museum does contain some of the basic information, only a small fraction of it is translated into English. There is a very interesting video on the Manufaktura project -- how this industrial complex built in the 19th century by the visionary Polish-Jewish industrialist Poznanski was restored, redesigned and transformed into the very impressive cultural, culinary, shopping and entertainment center that is Manufaktura today.

Good idea however only one floor not much to see. I have been leaving in Lodz for over 20 years, but I have to say avoid this museum. I know is just over £1 for entry but is nothing there.

The museum gave an excellent history of how Lodz became the great rival of Manchester in the cotton industry from approx. 1820 till all their major markets collapsed at the end of World War !. Facenating to follow the history up to our time!

A great museum that told the story of the textile industry and the factory site in particular. At one time there were 850 textile factories in Lodz contributing to the expansion of a once tiny village. A really interesting story and a great roof top view of Manufactura site for 4 Zloty (less than £1) each. We were there for ages as most of the exhibit was translated to English.

A great family attraction, you will learn not just how cotton came from the fields and how it was processed and then turned onto clothes, but also the history of an industry that made some people extremely wealthy in Lodz.
A real working historic museum that is fun and educational at the same time. Highly recommended.
