Weaving Museum Geldrop
When you dive into the history of Geldrop-Mierlo, you discover that the textile industry in this place meant a lot to the Netherlands and Belgium, and therefore also to the inhabitants themselves. You will feel this when you go to the Weverijmuseum.
A visit to the Weaving Museum is more than worthwhile. Not only because you will learn more about the weaving process, but mainly because you will learn more about the DNA of the inhabitants that you will encounter during your stay in Geldrop-Mierlo. This history is in our blood.
Weaving is still being done on the looms of the museum. Lubrication pads for trains and locomotives in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France and England, textiles for historical heritage, but also Piet Hein Eek tea towels come from these looms. And of course, you can also buy those tea towels in the shop of the Weverijmuseum for your home.
The Weaving Museum is a former factory for the production of woollen fabrics. The guides (the tour is included in the admission price) are professionals, former weavers, loom workers and textile workers. They are very happy to take you to the weaving and life at that time.
