Really enjoyed this

A small but fascinating museum if you are interested in textiles. The building itself is interesting and we found another exhibition in the foyer which was excellent.

This museum has about twenty tapestries which were made in mid 1700s and are in good shape. They are worth seeing but we were hoping for more.

We went to the Musee whilst in Aix en Provence. Fortunately it was free entrance. There was no map,of the exhibits, we were simply pointed towards a door. Inside, there were three doors - door 1 went outside, door 2 went to a garden and door 3 went upstairs to four or five rooms of exhibits. The Line of sight... More

For the very first time, I was brought to an appreciation of the creative genius and painstaking labour that go into the production of the wonderful tapestries on display. Moving beyond belief.

If I say tapestry and you say, "Oh, I loved the Cluny!" then I must sadly tell you to put those ideas out of your head. The odd assortment of tapestry here from the 17th and 18th centuries is not the stuff Clunies are made of. The fee is a modest 3.5 Euros and the architecture has some charm, but... More

This museum is full of surprises with works from the great artists which unexpectedly turn up in its galleries. Highly recommended.

This Museum was interesting in itself like so many old buildings in France. It also displayed amusing and interesting tapestries from Don Quixote's travels as well as other excellent art and depictions of musical scenes. Dogs seem to be in so many of these pictures and scenes!

Wonderful tapestries from the 17th and 18th centuries - amazing they are still so vibrant and beautiful. The Place des Martyrs is also a lovely little square to enjoy. There was some work being done there for new shops and cafe when we were there.

Well, I agree with most of the other reviews about this place ...it's pretty bad. The tapestries in Brussels, where I live, are far better. There was also a temporary exhibition of photographs here but my friend and I both though they were awful. The guy at the ticket counter was really friendly though. A teacher's card or press pass...

I am an avid tapestry aficionado and I even I found this exhibition boring. Most of the rooms are not lit very well and those that are at least somewhat more impressive. The fee to get in is 3,50 euros and not really worth it in my opinion unless you really have never seen a woven tapestry before-these are old... More
