An amazing exhibition, definitely worth seeing when you are in Paris

I first saw them in 1975 when they were in an attic in the museum. Outstanding exhibit.

Good memories!….

The tools used to make the displays are in a small room just off the side of the main floor. Not to be missed!
They made the flock out of ground up silk!

And there are more of them on display in the Palais des Beaux Arts in Lille.!

I saw this display and it was jaw dropping….

Nice to see that after all these years (I saw them nearly 40 years ago) they have got the kind of display they deserve!

Anyone know when this current set up was created?

Trajanus, it has been that way for some time now, I was last there almost 15 years ago and that is how they were displayed, of course the primitive camera that I had at the time would not take such lovely pictures……I guess that I will have to go back!

Well that's what I was thinking. A really good reason for a belated (very) return visit!

Happy for that boys!….

The staff got right shirty with me when I tried to take photos – very French at me they were. Great rooms though

Brechtel198 Supporting Member of TMP17 Jan 2020 6:39 a.m. PST

That's odd. I took plenty of pictures in the Invalides of the exhibits two years ago.
