A lot of industrial exhibtis from Chemnitz' industrial past ("The German Manchester") are shown, most prominent the machines that were used to produce different kinds of textiles. Many of the old machines do still work and are shown in action from time to time. All in all this is a really interesting place to visit and certainly something you shouldn't miss when in Chemnitz.

Wanted to visit Chemnitz for some time and selected the Industry Museum as a good place to start. Not really suitable for families but great for middle aged or retired couples.

Our satnav took us straight to the spacious on site car park and we headed first to the cafe. Think I made a bad order as menu on the board was only in German and I made some errors in translation!!! Left half of it.

Very reasonably priced museum and plenty of displays with both German and English writing. Not dynamic but interesting if you’re into that sort of thing.

Spent about an hour in the museum and would have struggled to be there for much longer. Still, an enjoyable and interesting experience overall.

A big, big museum of maschines of old Saxony. If you like maschines (agriculture, textile, and so on), this is the place to be.

As with most museums that I visited, students will get some discount, which really helps. The museum is really informative, with most of the explanations in English, so most of the tourists should be able to understand it. There is a showcase of how Germany Traffic Light works, as well as the textile part at the underground. Speaking of Textile Part, there's an old woman who is really kind, and went out of the way to help me understand the game located at the underground, as well as how the light experiment works.

Overall, must visit if you go to Chemnitz!

This museum is very interesting and informative. The special exhibition about gestures is interactive. So you can try something new and not only look at different objects and read some facts about it. I can recommend to visit it.
The staff is very friendly.
It’s really worth a visit.

Went with wife and two grade school sons. We all really enjoyed the displays. The working robotic car welding, CNC machining, telephone switchboard were all very good and the staff helped explain them. (We don't speak German but it did not matter, very helpful staff). The downstairs display taking cotton from the plant to thread to manual loom to high speed modern fabric manufacturing gave us all an interesting overview and is the best explanation I have seen, the woman there was great and showed us how every machine worked.

Highly recommended.

Amazing place and well worth a visit. Interesting display with robots assembling a vehicle which gives a good perspective on old and new. Nice that most of it was in English as well as German. Staff were lovely and helpful as well.

Chemnitz has a interesting tradition of industry: Carmaking, Tool-production etc. Quite a good exhibition of these traditions in a beautiful old factory house.
