Galerie des Gobelins is a tapestry factory located in Paris, where you can learn about the process and trials of creating tapestries. It is best known as a royal factory which supplied the court of Louis XIV and later monarchs. Today, you can take guided tours conducted in French and can even participate in creating a tapestry, which proves to be a more involved task than most visitors believe. Did you know it can take four years to complete a single tapestry?

The site also includes the Galerie des Gobelins, which displays exhibits like extraordinary furniture and art collections of the Mobilier National. Our Paris holiday planner makes visiting Galerie des Gobelins and other Paris attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The exhibitions are on 2 floors. The rooms are very large and there is a good height. Beautiful tapestries are exhibited. It enjoys more work when we know in what conditions they have been completed: the boys were trained from the age of 10 years.
