  • We don't expecting to discover an interesting museum about textile manufactures who have had a substantial impact on the economic development of this city. An interactive and historical museum that amazes with its diversity

  • ... "Nuremberg wit and Strasbourg G' protects and Ulm money, the richest in the world so if I ' says an old proverb. It was so far clear, however, that Augsburg splendor originated in the weaving. Because Weber were ancestors of the famous merchant and money distributor Jakob Fugger. So, Augsburg is a perfect location for a textile and industrial Museum. The directions from the tram stop was somewhat tenuous, but friendly construction workers showed us the way. The Museum is located in a former industrial area with interesting brick buildings and continuing. Worth a visit for children of the computer age, since they may touch some exhibits and can for example try to produce a thread, with a hand spindle what we adults not well managed. In addition to 4.00 entry, I recommend visiting the presentation in the machine room (price 1.50). The oldest steam-powered loom, which is presented by 1880, 1 woman served at that time 2 looms, which gave deafening noises, in a Hall in the 100 of this machine worked without health and safety... Interestingly the decibel number of devices in the newer models has not decreased only the protection measures have improved. All in all an interesting journey through the history of the substances, which I will sure continue.

  • The permanent exhibition is suitable both for adults and for children. It conveyed a lot of information in an entertaining way. Of course, there are many boards but also many interesting exhibits to read. The educational preparation have really succeeded. We rather less enjoyed the special exhibition.

  • Did not expect to find the museum so interesting, great if you are interested in technology!
  • Exceptional, educational.
  • The Museum is very nicely designed. On Sunday, you can visit the permanent exhibition for one euro. In addition, we have participated in the management to the Web and knitting machines, which in addition will cost 1.50. But the money was worth definitely. The guide is taken over by people who have learned even the profession of the Weaver and are thus well versed, and answer any question. As well, it is the machines time during operation, too interesting to be able to see. The Museum offers many service options for children. The special exhibition, which currently aims to the fashion and textile industry in the Third Reich is very interesting and also very scary. But once and a must for anyone interested in this period of German history. Too bad, I find that in the whole Museum may not be photographed. It was also a shame that the toilets apparently not once be cleaned Sunday. The women's bathroom is beastly reeked of urine and the booths looked absolutely devastated. Also, a pack was just toilet paper placed next to the sink so you yourself can control and otherwise nobody worry drum. I am really considering whether you should deduct not a star for that.
