For the very first time, I was brought to an appreciation of the creative genius and painstaking labour that go into the production of the wonderful tapestries on display. Moving beyond belief.

If I say tapestry and you say, "Oh, I loved the Cluny!" then I must sadly tell you to put those ideas out of your head. The odd assortment of tapestry here from the 17th and 18th centuries is not the stuff Clunies are made...More

This museum is full of surprises with works from the great artists which unexpectedly turn up in its galleries. Highly recommended.
