Knowledge center for textiles

And suddenly, you walk into a busy workshop… The TextielLab is an extension of the museum. It is the place where professionals translate the museum’s narrative into fabrics. And you are not only standing right there looking around in amazement, you are actually taking part in the manufacturing process.

TextielLab lives up to expectations

The TextileLab offers an exceptional glimpse into the maker's kitchen. You get to look over the shoulder of the professional on the spot.


Nowhere else do you find yourself so close to the intersection of art and creation. This makes your visit to the museum even more exceptional. Each creation stands on its own, and you are a part of its origin.

Perhaps during your visit - without even realizing it - you are witnessing the birth of a royal robe or a showpiece for a prestigious building, made using computer-controlled techniques. It is not uncommon for such pieces to be created in the TextileLab.
