At “Haus der Seidenkultur“ (HdS) in Krefeld the current exhibition “Mit dem Land verwoben – von Hauswebern und Seidenfabrikanten” (Interwoven with the region – about home weavers and silk factory owners) is being extended from 13th March to 24th April. “In this way we can fulfil the wish of many potential interested visitors who – in view of the recent wave of Corona – have planned their visit for the end of March/beginning of April,” says HdS spokesperson Dieter Brenner.
And: “Together with the „Kulturraum Niederrhein”we have highlighted the importance of the erstwhile major town provinces – that is to say the suburbs – and focussed on Hüls, a district of Krefeld with a very changeable communal, economic and religious history..“ For example the dividing line between the Catholic and Protestant Christians assigned to the County of Moers ran through the centre of the town.
The exciting chapter relating to textile history in Hüls is also related live on the spot during a “Town Walk along Silk threads”, a new option offered as from immediately at the museum. This can be booked under telephone number: 02151- 9345355.
