Secondary education

The TextielMuseum offers a wide range of secondary school activities including workshops and guided tours. The varied programmes are in line with the students’ interests and often result in surprising and enthusiastic responses. Secondary school students are fascinated by the history of the Woollen Blanket Factory, are amazed by the modern techniques and machines in the TextielLab and actively participate in the workshops.
Education on every level


The TextielMuseum offers schools the possibility of creating their own programme. Our workshops and guided tours usually last 60 minutes and can easily be combined together.

  • To book an excursion, fill in the booking request form. Museum excursions must be booked at least two weeks in advance.

  • When making a booking for several classes at the same time or an extensive programme, we advise making all the necessary arrangements earlier because of the limited amount of space.

  • All guided tours and workshops are given in Dutch. Workshops and guided tours in English can be organised on request.
