Museum Of Textiles And Decorative Arts Or Musee Des Tissus Et Des Arts Décoratifs - Review

Do you have a fetish for different kinds of cloth or ridiculously gold looking and classical interior decor? Come here and salivate at one of the richest textile collections in the world – covering about 4000 years worth of cloth history. The museum functions as two different museums though both are covered with the same ticket.

The textile museum’s collection began accumulation in 1846 and from then it just grew and grew through gifts, acquisitions and bequests. The main collections revolve around Egyptian and Coptic textiles, Middle Eastern (Persian, Byzantine, Muslim and Ottoman), Far Eastern (Japanese and Chinese) and Western (European, Spanish, Italian, British, German, French). These include carpentry, silk, embroideries, costumes, tapestries, upholsteries and lace. Pretty comprehensive isn’t it?

The Decorative Arts Museum on the other hand complements the textile section with an emphasis on Parisian cabinets, Italian majolica, French furniture, European paintings, ornate and fanciful Renaissance clocks commissioned by the Kings, and French silverware.

Even of you’re not an aficionado of these things… you can happiy spend an hour here – it’s all so colourful.

  • Amazing museum! An absolute must when visiting Lyon. The museum is much bigger than expected with lots of historical French culture. The textile exhibits include some international pieces as well. Every piece in the museum is intricate and beautiful. Well worth the €10 admission (bring a student card for the €7.50 discounted rate).

  • If you like fiber arts, this is an impressive and unique Museum. Make sure you are at the doors on the far, far left, which is the entrance. The door on the right can fool you as they are locked up tight.

  • We love looking at how people, at least wealthy people, lived long ago. Beautiful objet d'art in room settings. There's a preservation reason for dim lighting, but it makes it hard to see some objects. All labeling is in French; nothing is in English.

  • A nice museum! I really enjoyed the focus on the Lyon silks in the Musée des Tissus. The Napoleonic-Era clothes were very interesting, and the temporary exhibits were fascinating and impressively-curated. The history behind everything was well-documented and accessible. The Decorative Arts were really interesting too, though I found the crowded arrangement of each room a little overwhelming and things were not clearly labeled. I would recommend this museum to people who are curious about the fabric history of France and Lyon. If you're short on time and are not interested in textiles or the process and the products, I would suggest checking out some of Lyon's other museums first. That said, I've been to many museums in Lyon... if you know what to expect and have the time to come by, you certainly won't lose anything from the experience. A fascinating, unique museum experience. Again, really enjoyed the temporary exhibit.

  • Lovely! It was a stroke of serendipity... didn't even know that Lyon had a textile history
