The technical museum, housed in an inoperative, landmarked cloth factory, presents the history of the clothier trade, and closely associated, the history of the city of Forst. Since 1996, the Association of the City of Forst/Lusatia e.V. has been sponsoring the museum. Visitors can observe the complete crafts process of cloth production in a showroom and attempt it themselves. The museum also includes an open-air terrain, a specialized library and regular special exhibitions. The educational program of the museum includes show events, weaving classes on old hand looms and frames as well as textile design for all age groups.
