    Finally a conversion from industrial building made with brain, beautifully manicured large areas but make the idea of a true textile factory of the last century, perhaps slightly "arrufata" the arrangement of the exhibits tended the bookshop and spaces for children. Worth visiting.

    From 14 May to 29 April 2018 2017 you can visit at the beautiful Prato Textile Museum the exhibition Il capriccio and reason, over 100 objects of the eighteenth century which document the taste and elegance of a century. Clothes, accessories and fabrics come from prestigious Florentine museums (Museo Stibbert Museum of fashion and Costume of the uffizi Galleries) and the Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Como. Well worth a visit, as well as throughout the textile museum which informs the multimedia documenting the history of the industrial district of Prato.

  • Smallish but very good museum dedicated mainly to the history of the textile industry of Prato but also includes a good section on the different materials used in fabrics. And the piece-de-resistance is the "museum" of old fabrics and costumes. Stunning.
  • When we went to Prato last spring Google Maps still sent us somewhere far away and we spent quite some time to find it inside the city walls. Obviously they have changed that now and people can find this splendid pear of a museum more easily. It was very well presented, friendly people ready to tell some story about the past - and the objects: wow! And if you think that all this technology has been substituted by modern machinery not really a long time ago! AND to imagine what a HUGE PROGRESS such a fabric production was in comparison with weaving and producing everything manually! And what hard work to heat the oven to produce the steam which ran the machines! And then the possibility to see and touch the raw material from which fabric is created: fantastic! A beautiful trip into our - not too distant - history!
  • Great place to spend a quiet day. Small but very Museum stocked and well explained, with recreational activities for children and adults.
