Opened in 1975 in Tullio Buzzi Technical Institute, Prato Textile Museum commenced its cultural mission by providing a collection of items testifying the history of local textile production since the beginning of the 12th century for use in the training of new technicians in the textile design sector.
Prato Textile Museum is now a flourishing centre for the promotion of the local industrial district, a district which comprises around 8,000 companies and employs over 40,000 people.
Since May 2003 Prato Textile Museum has been definitively housed in the converted Campolmi textile mill, a symbol of the local textile manufacturing industry located in the centre of the city of Prato.
