There are usually not many people in this little and specialized museum. This is the rule and this may explain why it's so easy to wander around in the Rixheim museum. If you're around Mulhouse, stop and visit to admire the extraordinary paintings they display....More

Le Musée du Papier Peint (wall paper museum) gives an enticing overview of the history wallpaper. This museum IS worth a detour - for sure. On the ground floor you can see the production process (first manually and later using machines). In summer time, the...More

I never thought I would enjoy a wallpaper museum, but a short visit here was very interesting. The no photographs rule seems to have been broken by other reviewers here. There are whole rooms of panoramic prints, and many samples of paper. There are examples...More

Hi! Thank you for the review! The machines presented were used to produce wallpapers in Rixheim. The only exception is the Paper machine (the green one). Feel free to ask questions in english when you visit next time! :)

Only a small museum, tucked in the courtyard at the town hall, but there is plenty to view. Not all the exhibits have descriptions in English, but most are fairly self explanatory and it is possible to follow the video presentations, even if your French...More

Tired of nothing but art museums and such. This is fascinating and easy to get too on a city bus from Mulhouse. Wallpaper from mid 1700's to modern. Well displayed. Also exhibits on how it was and is made now. Definitely worth the trouble to...More

This museum tells the history of wall-paper manufacture. The small building is located in the courtyard of the Rixheim municipality and has pretty limited opening hours. The ground floor is devoted to the machinery used in manufacturing wall-paper while the top floor contains a fascinating...More

A different type of museum combining decorative arts with functional art. Located in a wall paper processing plant. Local town is also nice to walk around. Unique.
