Musee de la Toile de Jouy, Jouy en Josas

(3.9/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Toile fabric is famous all over the world, so it only makes sense that there would be a museum for it. The Musee de la Toile de Jouy celebrates the signature fabric, which was made in an area factory starting in 1760 by entrepreneur and printer Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf.

Locals started the museum in 1977, though it moved to its current home at the Chateau de Eglantine in 1991. Here, you can learn everything you ever wanted about the manufacture of this signature printed fabric. You'll also find a tea room, as well an extensive gift shop where you can buy toile.
