Cloth Museum

Recommended
Established in the Villeroy mansion (1730), this museum aims to be a conservatory of the art of fabric and its collections are divided into two main themes: West and East. Among the collections' highlights are the Meuble Gaudin tapestry created for Josephine's bedchamber at Fontainebleau, a sumptuous "Indian" shawl, miniature portraits in velvet, liturgical garments and ornaments and Eastern rugs and carpets.
