National Renaissance Museum - Château d'Écouen
From April 15, 2023 to Sep 30, 2023
We owe the Château d'Écouen to Duke Anne de Montmorency. Since 1977, it has hosted the National Renaissance Museum. The collections include an exceptional set of decorative arts, paintings and sculptures from the XNUMXth to the XNUMXth centuries.
The collections of the National Museum of the Renaissance present real treasures of the European decorative arts: furniture, goldsmithery, painted enamels, majolica, tapestries ...
Architectural jewel of the French Renaissance and the only museum in France entirely dedicated to the period, its vocation is to enlighten the widest public about all aspects of the period: history, art history, civilisation.
Many temporary exhibitions punctuate the cultural season.
In addition, you can discover the tapestries on the history of David and Bathsheba which have remained intact over the years.
NB From the end of January 2023, The David and Bathsheba Tapestry, the museum's masterpiece, will be taken down to make way for The Valois Tapestry, on loan from the Uffizi Gallery in Florence for the exhibition on Antoine Caron. Our ten tapestries will then remain in storage until the end of the courtyard work in 2027.
NB Closure of certain rooms (sculptures, bedroom of Madeleine, Abigail, Gallery of Psyche, cabinet and king's bedroom) from March 7 to April 3, 2023* due to the setting up of the exhibition "Antoine Caron (1521-1599) The theater Of the history"
*The reduced price of the entrance ticket will be applied during this period.
