#3 of 14 in Museums in Lodz
The Central Museum of Textiles is a museum of textiles located in the Ludwik Geyer's White Factory in Łódź, Poland.
First attempts to create an organized collection of textiles in the area date back to 1952, when Krystyna Kondratiukowa led to establishing a Weaving Department in the Museum of Art in Łódź. Owing to the success of this enterprise, the department was transformed into a branch of the Museum of Art.
As an independent organizational unit, the museum has functioned since 1960, when the Museum of the History of Textiles was established. It was renamed to the Central Museum of Textiles in 1975.
The White Factory — the seat of the museum — is a complex of classicist buildings erected by the family of Ludwik Geyer in the years 1835–1886. It is considered one of the most beautiful and unique monuments of industrial architecture in Poland. It owes its exceptionalness to the four-wing mill, the building of the Old Boiler House in the middle of a big courtyard, a high chimney, two dust towers and two water-towers. The process of renovating and adjusting the White Factory to the museum's objectives began in 1955, when authorities took a decision to designate it as the future location of the museum.
In 2008, the Central Museum of Textiles was extended by establishing an Open-air Museum of the Łódź Wooden Architecture.
The scientific, collection, and promotional interests of the museum concentrate around everything related to textile manufacturing process – from materials and textile techniques and technologies through to textiles products representing various degrees of processing. Collections are gathered, scientifically elaborated, conserved and, in various forms, displayed by the specialized thematic departments of the museum.

  • We visited the tourist information center on the recommendation. However, the building and ticket booths were very modern, although i don't know if it was an unforeseen judgment. I hesitated for a moment to see it, but I didn't see it in the end. Instead, he stopped enjoying a beautiful park around the museum. Would i have been much more satisfied if I had looked inside? There were so many red brick textile factories in Uchi. The choice is free.

  • You can only see the permanent exhibition of two rooms. They should close the museum until the restoration work is complete. I emailed a month before I went to Lodz to get interested in the museum schedule and I wasn't warned. A very unpleasant surprise traveling from Spain. The minimum thing is to reply to the email and notify of the restoration situation clearly on the web.
