The most amazing textile museum one could imagine. This city was the world #1 producer of textiles beginning in the 19th century and into the 20th.
This museum had the history and chronological displa of the machines up to the most complex. Also,stories of the textile workers, a huge costume display, also chronological. My favorite, huge comtemporary textile sculptures and creations on the 5th floor. Huge clean, industrial spaces.
Lodz is also a film capital with a groundbreaking film school. the stars on the sidewalk in front of the the Grand Hotel commemorated 3 dozen of the film titans – including Roman Polanski, Adre Wajda .The hotel is situated ona busy pedestrian street. Many of the industiralists near-palatial homes have been restored to give the downtown a remarkable appearance.
