When the business of the Müller cloth factory in Euskirchen-Kuchenheim deteriorated in 1961 the owners locked the gates and left everything standing as it was on the last day of work. The daily calendar from 1961 still hangs on the wall and a coffee mug stands next to the machines. Gently and lovingly the factory was renovated and converted into an industrial museum. The museum guides set filigree spinning machines and thundering looms into motion on every guided tour. Films and stands tell you about the working conditions, the heat and steam in the dye workshops, and the experiences and feelings of the former employees. Even the steam engine from 1903 occasionally comes to life grunting and groaning.
Enjoy the special exhibition: "Fashion 68.Mini, sexy, provocative".The exhibition shows how the appearance and fashion changed at the turn of the decade around 1970. Instead of understated elegance, Mini -skirts and Maxi dresses, Hot pants and Bell-bottom trousers, Space-look, Hippie gear and wild long hair was all the rage. A new life style dominated- and was demonstrated with provocative clothes and new outfits.
