  • In the old episcopal Palace, who was able to keep track of its past in its wooded walls, wind a little dated which takes the place of air conditioning of the mind when the summer heat rises on the place aux herbes. More or less solitary ambulation, under the observant eye of guards, gives to feel the weight of the years and, especially, to discover a great collection of fabrics including the famous "serge" denim that brought into the west of the city of Nimes, and proven reputation the solidity of his jeans. This walk between typical cevenol, local furniture, and history of the John, very well related, weaves a link precious between Nîmes and its textile industry which remains more than ever, at least in the international recognition gained by this pants overalls became emblem rebel before melting in the mass. For that and the smell of wax, the visit (is free for the permanent collections) at the Museum of the old Nîmes is a prerequisite for bringing, carried and will wear jeans!

  • The museum is very small, but you will not lose anything if you visit it. Inside there is an exhibition of denim (which was invented in Nimes), as well as historical costumes and objects.  more »
  • Free of charge. Worth a quick visit, however features only antique objects and I believe all the information is in French.

  • The building is well maintained BUT the museum is pretty dissapointing considering the impressive history of Nimes. Such a shame!
  • Nice projection on the Christmas day. It was about different child stories.
  • During my visit museum collection was not on display, there was a nice exhibition about denim (fabric from Nimes and abroad)
  • Missed opportunity for Nîmes to here something nice out of it. It is small and has little to tell. What is the origin of denim?
