We enjoyed both museums but pined for more explanations in English. We go to museums to learn about our world. It is not sufficient just to look. We must understand and love it when the objects are put in context.

Lyon was at the center of change in the textile world: Joseph Marie Jacquard, who invented the revolutionary "Jacquard loom" was a resident of Lyon. So it seems appropriate that Lyon would have a museum devoted to textiles and fabric. The examples in the museum...More

Imagine a museum that has a collection of more than 2 million textiles and you are picturing this museum. Unfortunately only about 10% of the collection is on display as the museum is experiencing a funding crises. If you love textiles visit here if only...More
