I've hesitated for some time to visit this museum, then when I did go there, I thought that I would have done better to have gone elsewhere. To start this review: it is difficult to get to from Paris, and the instructions the museum gives...More

For one thing you have to wait until 11 AM for the doors to open. The whole visit does not merit more than 1/2 hour. It lacks animations, only one video explains the different phases of the colour hand-printing of the toile de Jouy. It's...More

This is a specialist museum of 'Toile de Jouy' fabrics. The collection is comprehensive and very well displayed but not too big to see comfortably. There is a shop with Toile related goods and a small cafe as well as free parking. It is very...More
