Tournai historic weaving city is proud to accommodate some of the 15th- and 16th-century Tournai tapestries which made the city's name.
Come and see them by visiting TAMAT's permanent exhibition. A series of ancient tapestries which gave Tournai its reputation and some more contemporary works.
Former museum and centre for tapestry and fabric arts
Inaugurated in 1980, Tournai's tapestry museum needed a breath of fresh air. This has now been acheived and it invites you to see its new finds.
TAMAT, the museum helping artists of tomorrow
The TAMAT has a restoration-conservation workshop and a documentation and study centre which are both accessible to the public.
TAMAT loves new talent and, to help it bloom, it welcomes 8 grant holders each year to its research departments.
Many exhibitions are planned at TAMAT. Discover them in our calendar (in French).
