Our permanent exhibition The City of Colorful Cloth tells the birth story of our city. It tells about the time when the river through the city changed color to blue, green, or red, depending on the dyeing plant. It also tells about later days when the factory produced kilometers of colorful printed textiles, and when houses were made of concrete.

How did Forssa evolve to be what it is today? Who are the mysterious “cotton angels” and how did they come to work in the factory? Let us find out together!

You can find us at the Spinning Mill Area at the hearth of Forssa. Our address is Wahreninkatu 12.

Kiitos teille sinne Museolle! Olimme tyttären tyttären kanssa katsomassa paikkoja, joissa hänen 1800-luvun lopulla työnsä 12-vuotiaana aloittanut "mummonsa" oli työssä. Unohtumaton kokemus meille molemmille.
Lämpimästi kiittäen hienosti toteutetusta vierailusta. Sirpa Hämäläinen


Kiitos Asta, hieno perehdytys historiaan!
