It is best known as a royal factory which supplied the court of Louis XIV and later monarchs.

  • For those who love the arts of the wire, a visit to do it without hesitation! But for those who love Art because we are in the presence of artists. Drinking, a profession of passion! Passionate of textures, colors, composition, drawing, words fail me to tell my feelings... I wish this conference visit does not stop so fast. Thanks also to Stéphane Bern to make us discover our heritage and give us wanted to go figure it out.

  • I liked the "Dark business" expo conference visit that allows to admire contemporary works while traveling in time. So we come back on the origins of the manufacture, the techniques used (which have remained the same) and a reflection on the evolution of the art. Finally this experience to walk in socks on a monumental and silky carpet was very nice. The speaker is top, provides excellent explanations and is available for visitors.

  • Fantastic selection of tapestries by old master Jean Lurçat and an insight into the process of making these time consuming works of art
  • Rate average considering a 4 for the palace and a 2 for the item. But of course if you want to visit you know that you will see only very well and colourful tapestry.
  • Guided tours only Tuesday to Thursday 1:00. Only temporary contemporary exhibitions.
  • Known as a tourist destination, but the exhibition is quite practical and meaningful places. Neighborhood pretty can meet the living space of the French.
