Unloved museum - not worth price of admission
Jul 2021 • Solo
This is an unloved museum. Unloved by its numerous staff who are too busy chatting among themselves to take tickets. Unloved by curators who are too lazy to label exhibits or keep them clean. It is poorly organized and laid out, with very little to see. Staff outnumbered visitors 5 to 1, and still the museum is left largely unattended.

I love museums and am to give them credit — but this one wasn’t worth the price of admission. Too bad, because there is much that could be done. The employees and administration don’t care, and it shows.

not free any more, and only one room with denim
Feb 2020
The tour book said it was free, but it is 5 euros. The building is not very interesting, and there is only one room showing various varieties of denim, but no explanation of its history or why it is called blue jeans. If you are interested, it is better to look up online.

Poorly organized and ill described
Oct 2019
This was €5 I regret spending. Though some of the artifacts are interesting and beautiful, few of them have any explanation as to what they are, what period they are from or why they are grouped together. If I hadn’t read in the Rough Guide about Nîmes connection with denim (de Nimes) I’d have been completely confused by the room dedicated to Levis Strauss.

Interesting enough for no more than one hour

It is a small museum tucked away in the center of Nimes with just enough to make it worthwhile. Upstairs has little but some of what is shown on the ground floor was quite interesting to see.

Promises more than it delivers.....

Promises more than it delivers although, to be fair, the only place in Nimes that acknowledges that Denim is an original Nimes invention and not a Levi's product!

Best avoided

Complete waste of time and money. Will cost 5 euros to see a few rooms of stuff. Best thing in there is a few articles of old denim..

Waste of time
May 2018 • Solo
Went here a short time ago and really didn't understand it. My guide book said it was free but they insisted that I pay 5 euros. I have no idea what I was paying for.
I would avoid it just not worth the time. Just sit in the square and have a coffee, it's much more interesting.

historical museum featuring local arts and crafts
Nov 2017 • Friends
My wife spent a lot of time in this museum looking at the shawls in their collection. There is an interesting exhibit on the "serge de nimes" cloth that was used in blue jeans (denim).

A nice small free museum opposite the cathedral entrance
Jul 2017 • Friends
The museum is very small, but you will not lose anything if you visit it. Inside there is an exhibition of denim (which was invented in Nimes), as well as historical costumes and objects.
