  • You can learn a lot about the local textile industry. Quite big museum, with both permanent and temporary expositions. Clearly a "must do" if you are a fashion addicted.  more »

  • Very interesting museum though not much translated into English so I should think those without command of the language suffer. Staff will help translate. They do a demo of making lace at particular times in the afternoon. Parking close by. Restaurant on site served good simple food.
  • Not normally my thing but it was really interesting. The demonstration of the machines weaving was very powerful and I enjoyed it albeit it was in French but I got the gist.
