Museum of Fine Arts and Lace-making

Patrimoine culturel,

ALENCON

Alençon Museum of Fine Arts and Lace occupies a prestigious setting within the Cour Carrée de la Dentelle, the town's former Jesuit school.

The major attraction of the collections is the outstanding presentation of needlepoint, especially the prestigious "Point d'Alençon". The technique for making this lace has been on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list since 2010. The fine arts section has a permanent display of works from French, Italian and Scandinavian schools from the 17th to the 20th century: Boudin, Courbet, Fantin-Latour, Monanteuil, etc.
Visitors will be amazed at the exceptional Cambodian collection from the last century.
