A very pleasant experience tracing the history of printed fabric in the Alsace area. As a visitor with limited French language skills it was difficult to make the most of the experience. The staff were very helpful & keen to promote the museum.

This is an unusual topic, but textile printing has been quite important to Mulhouse. Kudos to the textile printers of the 19th century who decided to start saving exemplaires of their equipment. Well worth your time.

Very boring and not worth your time. I am a Home Ec. Major and I expected to enjoy it, but did not like it at all. Not a lot to see.

I expected more of this museum. The picture with the 3 dresses got my attention but in total there are only 15 of those costumes. The rest are walls with different print patterns.More

Really worth to make a stop and see the collection. Also the temporary exhibition "Histoire de femmes" was a real discovery to me.

I loved the Asian part of the exhibition. The actual fabrication of textiles was not that great: I've seen better museums explaining the process behind the weaving, printing and colouring of the fabrics.

My tech-y husband and I both found this museum fascinating: lots to see and learn. My favorites were the printing blocks, and the descriptions of the different steps in the printing process. Interesting machines, with explanations of the different problems/requirements of different fabrics.
