Tapestry and Fabric Museum of Tournai

The golden age of tapestrymaking in Tournai went from 1450 to 1550. The museum, installed in a villa, presents exceptional monumental pieces. The various themes are elegantly shown. The Centre for Tapestry, Mural Arts and Fabric Arts, which illustrates the stylistic evolution in European tapestries since the late Middle Ages, is also worth seeing. The conservation-restoration workshop is accessible to visitors.
