We had visited the Musee des Tissues et des Arts Decoratif on a previous stay in Lyon, and loved it. This time, much of the museum was closed for a planned special exhibition and the Arts Decoratif was closed "for safety reasons". Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed. Check on the status before you visit.

Be prepared to spend quite some time viewing the exhibits. It is absolutely marvelous to see the workmanship. Some of the pieces are kept quite in the dark to preserve them.

As an archaeologist by training with a deep interest in textiles this place is heaven - the only problem I had was I kept feeling not all the place was open. When I purchase the catalogue in the gift shop there were a lot of things in it that I hadn't seen in the exhibitions.

so much to see. I had thought it would be full of art deco pieces but this was not the case. it was more about fabrics and art as decoration than art deco but I was not disappointed by the large comprehensive display of amazing fabrics and rooms full of centuries old furniture

Good for those with special interest in fabrics. Collection could have been presented much better. Low lighting (but not atmospheric) and objects amassed in rooms.
