When we went we saw the Lurçat tapestries based on the mediaeval Apocalypse tapestry in the castle, and the Millecamps tapestries on exhibition till July 2019. The workmanship, the detail and the imagination applied to it all are magnificent

After seeing the Apocalypse tapestry in the chateau, we went to see this museum. The Lurçat tapestries are impressive: very meticulous work, great colors, interesting stories, ... very beautiful building also.

I'm not a huge tapestry fan (haven't given them much thought really), but a great small museum dedicated to the lost art of it all. Very well laid out and executed and some beautiful pieces (it's not dedicated to the historical pieces that you find...More

Love the tapestries....Some very modern ones that are thought provoking. In the same area is a 12th century chapel that was also used as a hospital

Jean Lurçat was inspired to spend the rest of his life making a series of massive tapestries after seeing the "Apocalypse" series of tapestries (now housed in the Chateau). And if you've been to the chateau to see the Apocalypse (a must-see) then your next...More
