Museo didattico della Seta
The Educational Silk Museum was founded in 1985, thanks to the initiative of two associations ("Class '27" and "Former Alumni of Silk Factory") with the aim to collect and display the artifacts of the textile tradition of the territory, which make the city of Como an important center of the silk industry. Opened to the public in 1990, the Museum traces the history of the textile processing through machinery, objects, documents, samples and tools. The exhibition provides a educational setting accessible to every user targets. The Museum has archives and stores, organizes events, exhibitions, competitions and publications.
