To the connoisseur of luxury and style, this museum is a vast trove of wonders, perhaps without equal on the continent. The evolving fashions and cosmopolitan savoir faire of French life unfurl in a stunning panorama of the decorative arts from the Middle Ages to the present. Superb and delightful objects and techniques of every kind are presented: the 150,000 works are first organized chronologically to shed light on their evolution, and then in a separate sequence of ten beloved period rooms.
