The museum is interesting if you like textile industry. You can see machines from across the ages, know some stories of the workers or look to several exhibitions.

Went there with my husband, and both of us got more than we expected from a museum - information on fabrics, on history, on design, on technics and much more, beautifully prestented. Also recommended for kids, they can join in and try out.
