The Cité internationale de la tapisserie


The Cité internationale de la tapisserie opens in summer 2016 in Aubusson (Creuse, France). The building of the former National School of Decorative Art in Aubusson has been entirely rehabilitated by Terreneuve architecture studio (Paris).

The main objective of this new institution is to make visitors discover an age-old craftsmanship: Aubusson tapestry. The heritage collections are presented in a brandnew and immersive museum exhibit.

More than just a museum, the Cité de la tapisserie is a place of artistic creation, training and supporting the tapestry economic sector, which still remains complete and preserved within the territory of Aubusson and South Creuse after six centuries of existence.
