La Manufacture - Musée de la Mémoire et de la Création Textile

Museum (ROUBAIX)


Spoken languages : anglais, espagnol


This textile museum-workshop is located in the former Craye weaving factory that specialised in upholstery since the 1900s. The great innovations that revolutionised the weaving industry are presented here, against a genuine industrial backdrop, and demonstrated by the machines of yesteryear. Over the course of the visit, you'll find out all about the industrialist families who built up the textile empire, what the working conditions were like and how they changed as time went on, and even about the important role of immigrants.
