The museum is the only place in the world that brings together everything related to textiles: in-depth historical records, industrial heritage, education programmes, traditional craftsmanship, modern technology and cultural entrepreneurship that all inspire new creativity.

Employees work in various positions within the museum. Whether you are looking for a position in registration and preservation department, education, product development, demonstration, finance, HRM, facilities, secretarial, IT or want to work in the public team, the library, the TextielCafé or the TextielShop, the museum offers many possibilities!
