Museum Over Industrie, Arbeid En Textiel - Review

Gent built its fortune on textiles in the medieval ages; t might be the only reason that the city prospered and survivied. In tribute to that legacy, they’ve built this museum on Gent’s primary industry and labour in the remains of an old and abandoned cotton mill. On;y 3% of the museums entire collection is on display. It focuses on both antique and modern gadgets that are in anyway related to the museum. Sure, Gent already has two different museums lent to its history, but this a fresh and unquie perspective on the development of not just the city, but the idea of industry as a whole. Check it out.

Museum Over Industrie, Arbeid En Textiel, Ghent Reviews

  • Fascinating super rich museum. If anything its over ambicious. English translations provided via book are a bit less engaging than if the translations were on the walls.

  • Fascinating industrial museum in an old cotton mill with some working printing presses and industrial looms. Very good guide books in several languages that concentrate on the social history of the industrial revolution. Great sandwiches in the attached cafe.

  • Really nice museum about an important part of ghentian history. To me the structure was a bit off though, but I know that the museum is working on some improvements at the moment. An app to provide extra information on the exhibits would be a good addition. The museum is worth a visit, it is very low priced and in a beautiful neighborhood in the city center.

  • Again, English translations would probably have improved the experience. However, I work in Textiles, usually love anything textile related and I enjoy museums, so I feel like I should have been able to enjoy the museum despite a language barrier. I actively disliked being here. I felt that the exhibits lacked any curatorial direction or understanding of textile exhibiting practices. Everything was barricaded off and hard to see, and I got some weird colonialist vibes from the cotton exhibit. Would not recommend.

  • Would be SO much better if there were captions in English. Beautifully curated but no idea what it all was.
