If you are in Moulins it is worth a visit to see the costume museum! You can get an English audio tour for part of the museum and overall it was an interesting museum to explore. It's not very big and is easy to walk through.

This was my second visit to the museum; the first one was the previous year (2013) to see an exhibition of circus costumes. The museum now has a permanent exhibition dedicated to Nureyev, plus the majority of the space is used for temporary exhibitions which last several months each. The exhibitions are beautifully lit and displayed, and the highlight is... More

Excellent value at 6€ pp. There were two exhibitions, one on the life of Rudolf Nureyev, including an half-our video of an interview, and a number of the costumes he'd worn. The other was on costumes from shakespearean plays and stills from many plays in which the costumes were worn.

I have been several times to the CNCS and I must say that every time is a new surprise. The great thing about this museum is that it has only one permanent exhibition (the amazing collection of items and costumes from Rudolf Nureev which is exhibited according to his will). Everything else is a temporary display, taken from the huge... More

Located in a former military building just passed the bridge over the river Allier, this museum organises temporary exhibits on the theme of costumes. Between June 15th (2013) and January 5th (2014) the exhibition is all about circus. Costumes from cirque du soleil and cirque plume, all around the central circus themes and illustrated by older and more recent films,... More

The building itself is worth seeing if you are around, the national museum is worth planning a trip there - a short train ride away from Paris. Unfortunately the museum only offers temporary exhibitions to protect the costumes that are fragile by nature.

Very well presented information and exhibits. Video clips throughout the exhibition and a great film at the end. Live locally and never miss a new show.

Until December 31st 2012 the exhibition here features the entire collection of costumes designed by Christian Lacroix for the ballet La Source, performed in Paris in 2011. These fabulous costumes are the stars of the show, but the exhibition shows all the stages of their production, from sketch and fabric swatches to videos of the actual performance. In fact you...
