Fodor's Review

If you've ever imagined your home strewn with haute-couture creations, this museum will, perhaps, give you a clearer picture. Christian Dior's childhood abode is now France's only museum dedicated to a fashion designer; a number of his garments are on display around the house, and special exhibitions focus on themes like Dior creations worn by movie stars on and off screen. The beautiful "artist's" garden, created by Dior's mother, overlooks the sea and contains a tearoom (open July and August from noon to 6:30).
