“Really interesting display of textile industry”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This is a nicely restored factory complex. There appears to be a number of other institutions in the complex. The displays in the museum told a really interesting story of the industry. The machine display was extensive and up close (although "don't touch").

The films and multimedia displays really showed what it was like to be working there.

Definitely worth a visit.

Interesting small museum located in the Manufaktura center. It gives you insight of the textile industry history of Lodz city before II World War. Some very old textile machines still working - must see !
