Visit a children factory

At the Textile Museum both young and old gain an insight into an industry, that - through the ages - has given people around the world clothes on their body - and an identity and development to Midtjylland as well. 

The children can get to work at The Children Factory, which is an entertainment playground, where they can learn about the history through play. 

Here you can get a taste of what it was like to work in a textile factory. The clothes have to be produced, mooved around between the different floors and packed in boxes, which are shipped to the station to be sent out into the big wide world.

 

Learn about turf

Visit the former turf factory and learn the history of the industry of turf and the moorland cultivation around Bølling Lake. See the turf machinery and greet old races of horses, rabbits, geese and chickens. 

100 years ago the children were actually faster than the adults at working with turf. For that reason, the child workers played an important role and the most rapid children could put up 30.000 pieces of turf a day. 

For families with children it is possible to play at the large natural playground with an amazing view over Bølling Lake.

Between the white buildings you find parks with a beautiful plantation, paths and water basins. In The Sculpture Park, which is a big circular museum, you can see spectacular works of art in the open air. You can also discover The Geometrical Gardens - a maze with new spaces and shapes around each hedge.
