Specialty Museum
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.

  • After a visit to the splendid House of the painter Foujita in Villiers-le-Bacle, what a disappointment to the discovery of the canvas of Jouy Museum: three small rooms, not much to see, no instructions and all this for 7 euros! Way too expensive for the little that is presented. And more unlikable. I do not recommend!

  • Without much expansion; but curious in view. In the described the history of a textile industry. The first in France he used the print on canvas instead of embroidery, much more expensive.

  • Small museum to see if we're in the corner but not really worth the detour. It's interesting to see the video on the making of the fabric of Jouy

  • I learned many things. With a very interesting video. More technical demonstration, and instrument manufacturing would be more appealing. The shop is very provided. Full of ideas gift or souvenir. I recommend.
