Not what I was expecting but it was ok - there was a display of chairs and some tapestry so not really the focus I expected.

I would just pass by and admire the exterior of the building due to its historical relevance that most of the tapestries seen in museums and palaces were mostly manufactured here. The inside didn't have much interesting things to see as can be also seen...More

Headed to the offbeat Gobelins Manufactury for an exhibit on seating through French history. What a great show. Very well curated in a beautiful underused setting home to the famed tapestry works. Another hidden Paris museum gem. Only opened to the public for specific exhibits.

Manufacture des Gobelins At €18 this is a very expensive and disappointing tour even for someone like me who is very interested in this craft. The first 50 minutes of the tour were spent standing listening to the guide. There are no tours in English,...More

We were a large group attending a conference in Paris near the Gobelin manufacture, and therefore it was obvious to include a visit to the Gobelins. And we were not disappointed: it was outstanding to experience the concentrated work and handcraft of the chosen few...More
