Fodor's Review

From silkworm litters to moire-finishing machinery, this small but complete collection preserves the history of a manufacturing region that continues to supply almost three-fourths of Europe's silk. The friendly staffers will give you an overview of the museum; they are also happy to provide brochures and information about local retail shops. The location isn't well marked: follow the textile school's driveway around to the low-rise concrete building on the left, and take

the shallow ramp down to the entrance.
