Beauvais was a centre of tapestry-making for centuries, and it is no surprise that this museum serves a dual purpose: it introduces the visitor to the history of this ancient art in a small gallery (due to be expanded soon) and it hosts temporary exhibitions....More

There are many exhibitions in the gallery some contemporary examples of needlework. There is an excellent section showing how Beauvais has developed over time - especially with regard to its rebuilding after being bombed during the war.

There is an exhibition about industrial and population change in Beauvais, along with different construction methods over the centuries. Very interesting - great photos. All the tapestries have been moved - mainly to the Town Hall (Hotel de Ville) - which are free to visit.

Small museum with lots of local history. Pottery, tapestry and other artwork. I believe it was free, so a nice way to spend some time after the Cathedral.

Captions only in French but not German or English to help visitors. Staff on desk helpful. Free to enter which will encourage looking at such a specialist attraction.

There is currently a free exhibition detailing the history of Beauvais - industrial, religious, architectural and economic. Huge benefit is that the interpretation is in both French and English. We learned a lot about Beauvais and its' history. Staff bilingual too!!
