Housed in a wing of the Louvre Palace, in the 1st arrondissement, this famous Parisian museum has one of the richest collections of decorative arts in the world! The countless works of art and sumptuous decorative objects contained in the Museum of Decorative Arts are arranged chronologically into five departments, from the Middle Ages/Renaissance to the Modern/Contemporary era, through the 17th/18th/19th centuries and the Art Nouveau/Art Deco period. Furniture, gold objects, ceramics, glass, painting, sculpture, tapestry, wallpaper, toys, but also graphics and tableware are all areas of the decorative arts that you can discover as you explore the rooms...
Accessible by Metro (nearest stations: Tuileries and Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre), the site also has two departments whose collections are only displayed during temporary exhibitions: one devoted to advertising and graphic design, the other to fashion and textiles. The latter, with its many period costumes, fashion accessories and other textile pieces that chart the evolution of fashion over time, also houses the creations of big names like Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix. Meanwhile, the Advertising and Graphic Design department has a large collection of historical and contemporary posters as well as TV advertisements, press ads and promotional items.
