Museum of Carpet

A unique insight into the heritage, industry and art of carpet making.

The Museum of Carpet opened in 2012 and is the only museum in the UK dedicated to celebrating the heritage, art and industry of carpet making.

Located in Kidderminster town centre, the museum invites visitors to discover the unique story of Kidderminster, once known as the ‘Carpet Capital of the World’, through visuals, photos, films and interactive displays.

The story of Kidderminster’s carpet industry is brought to life by a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers, many of whom lived and worked in Kidderminster during its carpet industry heyday.
