Atelier musee de la soie guides you through the silk-making process used in Taulignan. You'll learn about silk manufacturing techniques through multimedia displays, photographs, and documents dating back to the industry's heyday in the 1860s, when the town was twice as large due to demand for spun silk. The interactive exhibits make this modestly sized museum interesting for children, too. An introductory film features English subtitles, and an English-language handout is available.
