Mississippi Valley Textile Museum

HistoricPlaqueEngThe Mississippi Valley Textile Museum (MVTM) is located in the annex of the former Rosamond Woolen Company in Almonte, Ontario. Constructed in 1867 this National Historic Site of Canada now features a blend of the old and new, all related to the history of the Mississippi Valley and the textile industry.

Exhibitions range from early mill history and period mill equipment to cottage industry and eclectic modern fibre art exhibitions. Our museum combines traditional static and working displays of textile equipment and processes with activities and events focusing on the region’s heritage, culture and role of the textile industry in the development of Canada.

As the saying goes, “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. For 2014, perhaps the saying should have been “April Flurries Bring May . . .”. Winter finally came to an end, and it is time to come to the Museum and brighten your day by visiting our latest exhibit, “A Collaboration”, by textile artists Pattie Dolan, Jean Down and Roberta Murrant.
