Timed to commemorate its founding by Henri IV 400 years ago, The Galerie des Gobelins  has reopened after a 35 year renovation. This tapestry gallery, located inside the Manufacture Nationale des Gobelins displays a time-line of tapestries, including a series created for Catherine de Medici in the early 1600s, as well as furnishings and other manufactured objects.

An inaugural exhibition, “Les Gobelins 1607-2007 / Revealed Treasures: Four Centuries of Creation” is now on view.
