Our permanent exhibition The City of Colourful Cloth tells the birth story of our city. It tells about the time when the river through the city changed colour to blue, green or red, depending on the dyeing plant. It also tells about later days when the factory produced kilometers of colourful 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? Lets find out together!

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