Visits to the museum are
by appointment only.
The Textile Machinery Museum is housed in a part of the spinning, preparation and weaving workshops of the "V.E.Marzotto" Industrial Technical Institute, whose premises were built in 1936 by Count Gaetano Marzotto within the "Social City".
The space reserved for the Museum has an industrial shed-type structure, with columns and architraves in reinforced concrete. This type of construction, typical of the period, is similar to some parts of the Marzotto Wool Mill complex. Inside, the most characteristic installations are the freight elevator to the basement and the misting humidification system.
