The Wesserling Park Textile Museum has been open since 1996. It is a former printing press building and occupies a key position in the landscape of the large park area. Today, it narrates, through a lively and artistic approach, the fabulous epic of this former “Royal Textile Factory” which has marked the history of the entire Saint-Amarin valley.
The Textile Museum is open every day from 10 am to 6 pm.
