As early as 1880, the foundation stone was laid for today’s extensive collection of textiles from the past 2000 years.
You can now view almost 30,000 textiles from all over the world in the Textile Museum Am Andreasmarkt in Krefeld Linn. Since the textiles are extremely sensitive, visitors can only gain an insight into the diverse collection during the exhibitions. The attached library, however, must always be visited during opening hours.
