Manufacture nationale des Gobelins, Paris

(3/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Manufacture nationale 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 Manufacture nationale des Gobelins and other Paris attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 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.
