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.
