The historic buildings of Herning Klædefabrik, founded in 1876 as a wool mill, have had their entire industrial facility restored and can today showcase and present to visitors the textile industry as it was at the time that wool milling was the main occupation in Central Jutland.
The various exhibitions and workshops help to tell the fascinating story of the wool mill and how textiles were made both in the past and in the present. There is also an interesting exhibition of costumes from different periods. The oldest garments have been donated by private individuals and are excellent examples of typical everyday clothing from the 18th and 19th centuries. If the cultural and historical development of textiles, costumes and clothing is of interest, a visit to the Textile Museum of Textile Industry and Design will certainly be an exciting and educational experience.
