Musée des tissus Lyon

Textile Art Museum and Decorative Arts of Lyon

Created in 1864 and the first of its kind in France, the museum was born out of a desire to promote and encourage industry.

For 160 years, its vocation has been to form taste and to be a source of inspiration for the renewal of industrial and contemporary creation, and it has collected the finest examples of craftsmanship from all over the world: fabrics, ceramics, glassware, goldsmiths' and silversmiths' work, marquetry, etc.

Today, the museum boasts the most exceptional textile collection in the world, covering 4,500 years of history, from Antiquity to the present day, and the second-largest collection of decorative arts in France.

Threatened with closure, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region has invested with determination in the project to bring it back to life. While it is being renovated, the museum continues to share the treasures of its collections, reinventing itself through a wide range of cultural projects.
