Museum of the Factory shows the history of a textile mill complex founded by Izrael Poznański in mid 19th century. In the times of its past glory the factory produced million of metres of cotton fabrics. The exhibition shows how the factory developed in time, what was the material production technique and also how the day of ordinary factory workers looked like. You will also find photographs, documents, films, architectural plans, samples of materials and final products there. The museum offers an unique possibility to learn how the looms operated and listen to the stories of the retired factory workers.

Good idea however only one floor not much to see. I have been leaving in Lodz for over 20 years, but I have to say avoid this museum. I know is just over £1 for entry but is nothing there.

The museum gave an excellent history of how Lodz became the great rival of Manchester in the cotton industry from approx. 1820 till all their major markets collapsed at the end of World War !. Facenating to follow the history up to our time!

It's surprisingly small, giving a quick overview of how the factory which occupied the current Manufaktura complex fared over time. Somehow one expects more esp. given how big the factory once was.
