Free guided museum tour in English at 5 pm

Forssan museo järjestää maksuttoman englanninkielisen opastuksen Kirjavan kankaan kaupunki -näyttelyyn Mahdollisuuksien torin yhteydessä.

You are most welcome to join our English speaking guide on a journey through the history of Forssa during Mahdollisuuksien tori -event and the Spinning Mill Area.


THE CITY OF COLOURFUL CLOTH
Our permanent exhibition City of Colourful Cloth tells how Forssa evolved from a group of farming villages of the middle of the 19th century into a modern industrial city.

It tells how Axel Wahren founded Forssa and how “cotton angels” came to work in the factory. It tells about the time when the river through the city got blue, green or red, depending on the dyeing plant. It also tells about later days when rotating machines produced kilometers of colourful cloth, and when houses were made of concrete.

FREE ENTRY!
