The museum functions in the ex-residency of one of the most flourishing textile businesses of the past, in the main building of the Goldberger Company founded in 1784. In the ground floor of the more then 200-year-old building there had been a clothe-painting business going on, and the first floor was used by the Goldberger family. In the continuously expounding factory there were made pressed textiles, a number of which were meant for European export. continue
Permanent exhibitions
The Goldberger factory at the turn of century
The selection commemorates the Goldberger Company via documents, sample books, photos and paintings. The choice of topic was given: the first workshop owned by the family opened in the present museum building at the end of the 18th century. continue
Cast iron framed sole-maker
The exhibition presents the last pieces of textile manufactures. Tutyi was made on production lines in Tamási in the Rittinger Workshop until 1991. Tutyi are the shoes, closed slippers worn by German ethnic groups. The display presents the objects in the order of their manufacturing. 13 machines worked in the original workshop, however, we only show the most interesting ones. The raw material of tutyi, wool, was washed and separated, pre-carded and the so-called line came off the endcontainers. continue
