Museum of the Renaissance, Ecouen

Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Housed in the Château d'Écouen, Museum of the Renaissance features the artwork of the Renaissance: paintings, sculpture, ceramics, tapestries, and more. Many of the pieces come from the collection of the Musée de Cluny. The château itself belongs to the category of Renaissance art, due to its origins. Art patron Anne de Montmorency commissioned the castle in the 16th century. An avid collector, he also invited several masters to decorate the house through frescoes and carvings, thus making a fitting home for all the Renaissance art that visitors can wander among today.

  • As part of a cultural outing organized by the association of the friends of the library of Luce (28), we are visiting the castle of Écouen, home of Anne de Montmorency, friend of François Ier. The tour was guided by Anais which I admired the memory, vast knowledge and kindness while we discover the most interesting parts of the Museum. These 2 h made us travel in time among a beautiful items of silverware, painted leather, hangings, enamels, the pavements, statues... and we have allowed to forget the incessant Broom of the planes overhead. 33 of the 36 rooms were open, unfortunately we couldn't spend more time. We are back!

  • Easy access, affordable price, Nice staff, well kept place. A castle that deserves to linger, beautiful tapestry, ceramics and earthenware. A dip in a poorly understood time (for my part) and allow to situate some things. Lift available for strollers, and many rooms to visit. Visit driven people to 6.5 euros but not recommended with young children.

  • Another beautiful castle and cool museum, free for EU citizens under 26
  • The host that received me at the reception for a request for information for a polished summer wedding. But attention can be black and have a big family without being unruly. Otherwise it is a very nice place.

  • Fabulous place) If you are in the car or even without (up to Ëzanvilâ, near which the Museum and located, go trains from Gare du Nord), if you have time, get out here can and should be. The Museum is housed in a beautiful building on the polished territory, and yes even in the Park, which will have to go on foot from the parking. From the building of the Museum, the Castle offers views of the brain to hear the Ëzanvil′ and surroundings. Tale complements modern techno, namely over you constantly flying at relatively low altitude airplanes that sit down (or take off) at Charles de Gaulle airport. Feels like you can compare with a visit to the Kremlin in Rostov Veliky)
