Integral part of Łódź history – The Central Museum of Textiles – Lodz Post

The Central Museum of Textiles is located in the southern part of the city centre (Piotrkowska 282). You have probably seen the characteristic white building while traveling south along Piotrkowska Street towards Górna.

The museum is located in the former textile complex of Ludwig Geyer. Born in Berlin, he came to Łódź at the age of 23 to establish a textile workshop which eventually became one of the most modern factories of 19th century Łódź.

The beginning of the Central Textile Museum dates back to 1955 when it was decided to locate the Museum of History of Textiles in the building that is known today as The White Factory. It is worth mentioning that back in 50ties; the former Geyer factory was one of the first adaptations of postindustrial architecture into museum function.

There were a lot of renovations done since that time with the latest in 2006-2008. Thanks to Municipal and European Funds, the Museum was given additional 4 thousand square meters in the eastern wing (making the total of the surface 16 thousand square meters), open-air museum with a lot of interesting building from the period when industrial Łódź was being developed, inside courtyard with the interactive museum “Kotłownia” (Steam Boiler House).

The Central Museum of Textile is a modern museum where you can see and feel how the industrial Łódź looked like in the 19th century. There are a couple of interesting permanent exhibitions: The Tailor Shop, With fashion through the XX century, Reconstruction of a weaving mill from the late 19th century, Presentation of machines in motion, Tools and textile machinery in the collection of The Central Museum of Textiles and many more.

A place that all visitors find very attractive is the multimedia museum (Steam Boiler House). It is the first interactive textile museum in Central Europe that enhances visitor’s experience using the latest technology. The multimedia exhibition is prepared for an audience of all ages and includes nearly 100 engaging applications which give the opportunity to learn the history of the textile industry, the White Factory and Geyer’s family.

We strongly encourage you to check the museum’s website where you can find all information related exhibitions and other displays organized at The White Factory complex.

A Must for True Lovers of Art – The Museum of Art in Łódź – Lodz Post

The Museum of Art in Łódź is one of the oldest museums of modern art in the world. The museum was created as a result of an initiative by the very popular avant-garde artists of the “a.r” group which was active in Łódź in the 1920s and 1930s. Thanks to the enthusiasm and wide connections of Władysław Strzemiński, Katarzyna Kobro, Henryk Stażewski (the artists) and Julian Przyboś and Jan Brzękowski (the poets) the unique collection of contemporary art was gathered.

The support of municipal authorities (quite unusual in those times) and devotion of the “a.r.” members enabled such revolutionary collection to be exhibited at the Museum of History and Art at 1 Liberty Square in 1930. The collection has been consistently expanded since then. The Museum of Art owns the greatest collection of world art of the 20th and 21st century in Poland. After the Second World War, the museum was relocated to one of the Poznański palaces at 36 Więckowskiego Street. Unfortunately, due to lack of space, the whole unique collection could not be presented to the public.

This situation improved in 2008 when another branch of the Museum (MS2) was opened close to the Manufaktura complex in one of the modernized 19th century weaving plant. MS² enabled new opportunities of presentation of this interesting collection. The Museum’s website reads: “The Museum resigns from chronological order of presenting the works in favour of four themes, which are important both for contemporary culture and strongly present in the collection of the “a.r.” group. The themes, arranged in four notional triads, are the basis of organising the exhibition space. They are: “body, trauma, prosthesis”, “construction, utopia, politicization”, “eye, image, reality” and “object, fetish, phantasm”.

The building at Wieckowskiego Street was modernized as well and is now known as MS¹. The space is used to present temporary exhibitions, presenting performance art, organizing workshops and film screenings. The element connecting this place with the tradition of The Museum of Art is the Neoplastic Room, designed in 1948 by Władysław Strzemiński as a space for presenting the activities of the “a.r.” group and of Constructivist artists.

The third branch of the Museum of Art is the Herbst Palace at 72 Przędzalniana Street (in the Priest’s Mill area). The palace and a beautiful garden belonged to the family of Łódź manufacturers of the 19th and 20th century. Visitors can see how the Herbst family lived as the Palace as the interior was renovated and brought back to the original state from the 19th century. A lot of valuable old artifacts and furniture was placed into the exhibition as well. Additionally a gallery of Early Art is on display in the palace complex with paintings and drawings of known Polish artists such as: Jan Matejko, Piotr Michałowski, Aleksander Gierymski, Leon Wyczółkowski and Stanisław Wyspiański.

If you want to check out more on MS1, MS2 and The Herbst Palace, visit the museum’s website . The entrance to the Museum is free on Thursdays. On other days you can buy a single ticket or a combined ticket that will allow you to visit all of those three places.
