Description
The Mobilier National, a former furniture storage unit for the monarchy created in 1663 by Louis XIV and Colbert, is in charge of the furniture of the official palaces of the Republic: Palais de l'Elsyée, ministères... The Manufacture Nationale des Gobelins, whose history dates back to the 15th century, has occupied the current site since the 17th century. Guided tours are available. Production in the workshops never stop. In 1937, the two entities, as well as the manufactures of Beauvais (tapestries) and Savonnerie (carpets), are grouped together on the historic site of the Gobelins. The collections consist of around 200,000 pieces and have exceptional value in the Galerie des Gobelins (1914) where temporary exhibitions are also held including both ancient and contemporary creations.
