  • The Museum is housed in a beautiful monument. Personally I enjoyed the ground floor with the Gallo-Romaines collections. Objects have been found in the region, and two beautiful mosaics are well highlighted. On the other hand, fabric expo was much less even if the works are beautiful. My kids enjoyed particularly the items from the time Roman.

The textile Arts Department offers a collection of extra-European textiles XVIII-XXI century and offers a unique look at the world through temporary exhibitions inviting them to the meeting of cultures.

  • Very welcoming staff, exhibitions at the top, all for a price that is unbeatable (thanks the State subsidies!). I would highly recommend.
