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.

The castle is beautiful and perfectly maintained. The Park, however, is disappointing; This isn't really a park, but access to the forest of Écouen and part was not available.
Un avis au musée de Cluny sur le partenariat avec le château d Ecouen nous a attiré (1 visite achetée = 1 visite gratuite dans l autre musée ). Très bonne initiative. L arrivée au château est magique ... more »A notice in the Museum of Cluny on the partnership with the castle of Écouen d we drew (1 visit purchased = 1 free visit in the other Museum). Very good initiative. The arrival at the castle's magic if a bit of mist obscures the façade. The view from the terraces it is built on a site overlooking the plain of france. This museum is one incredible wealth but unfortunately this period is a bit forgotten in island of France while we have treasures and incredible artists. The tapestries and furniture are superb. But what m most impressed is the top floor in the same room where we find an impressive collection of Italian majolica, d Venice glass and enamels limousin. Difficult not to compare and realize that the glazes are made with a technique very accomplished and more delicate. Pity that the Museum was closed at the time of the lunch because we love s linger more. Don't forget to go through the tourist office and ask to see the stained glass windows of the Church st home.
Excellent place. The antiques and pieces of history show the mindset and culture of the people that lived during the Renaissance
Fine tapestries and some unique objects. You need to be OK with stairs.
A beautiful chateau offering nice views and some really interesting Renaissance items. Quiet and not overcrowded.
Very nice castle (fortress) not a lot of people, price is nice 5 euros for full tariff, and for groups discounts. This place has very reach collections. I really recommend.
Beautiful calm and quite place 15 mins drive from saint denis
