This museum has a unique collection of objects from the art, fashion and advertising worlds, from the Middle Ages to the modern day.
The presentation of objects in "Period Rooms", one of the characteristics of the institution, bears authentic witness to the social and daily life of past centuries.
The jewellery Gallery
More than 1,000 works provide an extraordinary panorama of the history of jewellery in France.
Rings, necklaces, bracelets and broaches are presented chronologically, alongside an overview of the technological evolution of skills and materials. As the prime link between the decorative arts and fashion, jewellery marvellously illustrates the dexterity and creativity of artists and artisans from the Middle Ages to today.
Theme Napoleon and Joséphine
The room entitled Le Goût de l’Empire is dedicated to the Imperial style, and in particular displays an important collection of gold and silver work by Jean-Baptiste Claude Odiot.
The collection of Empire jewellery shows how much the period was inspired by ancient Rome
