Fodor's Review

A sister museum to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, this one is dedicated to the woven-arts industries that were so crucial to Lyon's fame and fortune. Highlights include Asian tapestries from as early as the 4th century, Turkish and Persian carpets from the 16th to the 18th century, and 18th-century Lyon silks, so lovingly depicted in many portraits of the time. In the same building is the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, which has fine collections of silverware, furniture, porcelain, and tapestries.
