Smallish but very good museum dedicated mainly to the history of the textile industry of Prato but also includes a good section on the different materials used in fabrics and methods. But the piece-de-resistance is the "museum" of old fabrics and costumes. Stunning collection.

Housed in an old wool mill, this museum is well curated and beautifully designed. Excellent historic collection, and cool gift shop!

Please note, as this museum only has one staff member, the museum and shop actually closes at 2pm as we were very rudely told by the woman who wouldn't even look at us. We were very disappointed. So be careful!

Prato is the most important textile district in Italy and this is a museum dedicated to this ancient industry. Here you can find ancient fabrics, garments and some old textile machineries.
