Get to know the textile art of today and of the past


TAMAT is located in the centre of Tournai, in a former neoclassical style mansion house


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.
