Surprisingly interesting museum with a lot of 'material'. Cool exhibits for a variety of ages and interactive crafts for kids. If you want to read everything and watch/listen to videos give yourself some time, otherwise it's a quick walk through.

Have been there about four times, mostly for a special exhibit or event. Not very interesting to a casual viewer. The building is not well kept, and neighbours don't seem to like visitors.

Located in an old woollen mill, this museum does a great job of showing how wool goes from sheep to fabric. If memory service, at the height of the wool industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this region was one of the...More

A walk through the process of making wool fabrics, from sheep to shop. The focus is more on the mechanics of production than craft of making textiles. (More textile samples, linked to relevant looms, would be appreciated). On the main floor, a terrific raw space...More
