Permanent exhibition at The Museum of Industry
Best Implemented Project of Temporary or Permanent Museum Exposition
About the project
The permanent exhibition at The Museum of Industry is about people and machines.
The Museum of Industry was once a cotton factory. Listen to the walls of the museum today and you will hear the stories of the factory workers and their bosses from the past. The scenography tells the stories of witnesses and brings the collection of machines and objects to life.
The exhibition is an open factory hall with a number of freestanding rooms (box in box principle). In the box = history / out of the box = present. In this way, the visitor steps into a different moment of history where historical objects are displayed. In the boxes, 3 films show characters from the past who tell about their life and work in the cotton factory.
At the self-actor, a loom machine of 21m long, we simulate the movement, sound and noise the machine used to make by using a soundscape and video projection.
In the factory hall, the boxes are interspersed with machine setups that the visitor can put into operation himself.
