Wallpaper Museum

Please note ! The Wallpaper Museum will be closed to the public from 25 October 2023 for a period of 12 to 24 months. This building complex, classified as a historical monument, is undergoing a restoration programme (roofs, frameworks, exterior woodwork, façades, etc.).

The Wallpaper Museum, labeled Museum of France, will change your view of this mode of decoration that you think you know!”

Wallpaper lets the tastes of those, rich or modest, for whom it constituted the daily environment, shine through. Among its collections of more than 160,000 documents, you can admire wallpapers from the 18th century to the present day, from dominoté papers to the creations of contemporary designers. In the machine room, discover the technical history of wallpaper printing, from plate printing to the techniques currently in use, including the spectacular 16-color machine. The panoramic wallpapers invite you to dream by opening the walls on distant lands. Transport yourself to these exotic landscapes of the early 19th century.
