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.
Central Museum of the Textile Industry Reviews
관광안내소의 추천을 받고 일부러 찾아갔다. 그러나 섣부른 판단이었는지 모르겠으나 건물은 물론 티켓 부스 등이 매우 현대적이었다. 관람을 할까 잠시 망설이긴 했지만 결국 보지 않았다. 대신 박물관 주변에 있는 아름다운 공원을 잠시 만끽하는 것에 그쳤다. 만약 내부를 봤다면 훨씬 만족했을까? 우치에는 곳곳에 붉은 벽돌로 된 섬유공장들이 너무 많았으니까 말이다.... more »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.
Solo puedes ver la exposición permanente de dos salas. Deberían cerrar el museo hasta que termine la obra de restauración.

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.
Well right now is on renewal so there is no much to see or English information. Building is pretty. So I’m waiting for the reopening :)
Very interesting but some renovation work is being carried out at the moment and entry was free of charge.
