  • This is a great museum because it shows the clear line of history of the dominant industry in Mulhouse from the 16-19th centuries: textiles and specifically, printing on textiles. It starts with original fabrics from 15-16th century India which had a big impact on Europe. When they decided to copy the fabrics they had to build up an industry that started with ginning through spinning and weaving to dyeing and printing. Within a few decades Mulhouse was an important producer. To speed things up they started mechanizing every stage of that production. Trade brought a lot of wealth to Alsace. This museum concentrates on the dyeing and printing aspects of that industry.
  • Aan informative and very interesting museum about a craft that was important for the region
