For most children, a trip to the TextielMuseum is the first time they are introduced to the past, present and future of textile. They find out how textile forms part of their daily lives and discover all its possibilities. In the TextielLab, weaving, knitting, embroidering, tufting, laser-cutting and passementerie production techniques are demonstrated using modern computer-operated machines that transform all sorts of yarn into textile objects and artwork.
The costs are listed per programme. Admission is free for all primary school children, teachers and accompanying parents.
To book a school excursion, fill in the booking request form. Museum excursions must be booked at least two weeks in advance.
If you wish to book for several classes at the same time, it is a good idea to make the necessary arrangements earlier because of the limited amount of space.
Terms and conditions for school excursions
Visiting a museum with young children demands a great deal from accompanying adults. Keeping a class of schoolchildren ‘under control’ usually requires several accompanying adults. The number of adults that the museum expects to accompany school excursions is listed per programme. For this reason, admission is free for all accompanying adults.
