Fodor's Review

Housed in the 17th-century Palais de l'Archevêché (Archbishop's Palace), this museum showcases a sumptuous collection of tapestries that once decorated the bishops' quarters. There are 17 magnificent hangings from Beauvais and a series on the life of Don Quixote from Compiègne. Temporary exhibitions offer looks at contemporary textile art. The main opera productions of the Festival d'Aix take place in the broad courtyard.
