The past mixes with the present in this 19th-century building complex that once belonged to Israel Poznanski, one of Lodz’s richest citizens. Enter through the Poznanski gate, where workers used to file through every day on their way to the mills, and you will arrive at the project’s ground zero: the Rynek (main square). During our walk around the complex we will see two out of three museums located there – an interactive Museum of the Factory and the Museum of Lodz City. If we are lucky maybe we will also meet the owner of Manufaktura in person?
