Museum of the Renaissance, Ecouen

(4.4/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Beautiful time Museum renaissance. The various rooms are pleasant to visit (a little dark sometimes). Perfect for children who can't get enough. The wet weather did not enjoy the large park.

  • Not only live the tourist. The Louvre For those who want to enjoy a little more, the Chateau de Ecouen, situated in the town of the same name is a good thing. The building dates back to the 16th century and crossed the modernity in the Groove of wars, revolutions and economic crises. Following an idea of André Malraux, was renovated in order to house the National Museum of the Renaissance, which contains many paintings, tapestries, weapons, sculptures and objects from the collections of the Museum of Cluny.

  • We have come to take pictures with a married couple who had a written authorization, we could not go further than the driveway paved in front of the Castle. The guardian of the entrance really wasn't cooperative or friendly.
