Living in Roubaix : Places to visit

The factory

As we have said, the textile industry is part of Roubaix’s identity. It is therefore essential to visit the Manufacture. In this establishment, which was once a factory, you can discover the evolution of weaving techniques from the Middle Ages to the present day. There are machines from all eras and countless fabrics on display.

The swimming pool museum

The swimming pool museum is also a must-see in Roubaix; This building holds the “Heritage of the XXᵉ century” label.

In 1932, architect Albert Baert built his swimming pool here. It quickly became regarded as the most beautiful swimming pool in the country, surrounded by public baths, under a vaulted ceiling and topped by a magnificent stained glass window. The pool was refurbished in 2001 and extended in 2008.

Works from the Fine and Applied Arts collection are now on display in the rooms that were previously used as public baths and cabins. A recently installed extension houses an exhibition tracing the history of Roubaix, as well as temporary exhibitions.

Barbieux Park

This 35-hectare park is the city’s largest green space. Thanks to its presence, people can enjoy peaceful walks in close proximity to nature. It is also crossed by the Deûle canal.

The Town Hall

Roubaix town hall stands out from the crowd. This building was constructed in the XXᵉ century. The 100-metre-long façade conceals an area of over 6,000 square metres. Under the roof is a frieze showing the textile manufacturing process, from shearing the sheep to the final product.
