Museum programming is adapted to the health crisis by respecting barrier gestures, physical distance and by limiting the number of visitors. Some activities (guided tours, workshops) have a limited capacity and are by reservation only. The programme may also be modified due to the evolution of the health situation in France in the coming months. Visitors to the Vauluisant Museum will be asked to show a SANITARY PASS from 21 July 2021. The visitor must present it in paper or digital format, registered on the "TousAntiCovid" mobile application or any other digital medium; it must include a QR code. A check will be carried out to ensure that it matches the proof of identity of the Pass holder; this proof may be an identity document, but any document bearing a photograph (transport card, student card....) may also be accepted. Thank you for your understanding.

Précisions ouvertures Covid-19
- Open / Activity resumed
The Vauluisant Museum is one of the rare stone buildings in the city of Troyes dating from the middle of the 16th century. Its façade is rich and typical of Renaissance architecture, with its décor of pediments, cartouches, cherubs and garlands. Enlarged in the 17th and 18th centuries, the pavilion is flanked by two turrets, one of which has a spiral staircase.
The conic roofs are decorated with elegant groins and topped by a sun and a moon. Bought by the city in 1932 for the creation of a decorative arts museum, it currently houses both the Museum of Troyan Art and the Museum of Hosiery.
THE MUSEUM OF 16TH ART IN TROYES
At the start of the 16th century, Troyes was the cradle of an exceptional school of painting, sculpture and stained glass. Dozens of masterpieces are visible in many churches in Troyes and southern Champagne. The Museum of Troyan Art houses some remarkable examples, in particular sculptures, such as the Vierge de Villenauxe, the Christ de Pitié ; paintings, for example the Vierge au manteau rouge and stained glass, e.g. the panels
of the Hôtel de l’Arquebuse, by the master Linard Gontier.
THE HOSIERY MUSEUM
Inaugurated in 1948, the Hosiery Museum traces the history of a flourishing textile industry and underscores the very important social and economic role of this sector in Troyes. The collections comprise knitting machines and looms, the oldest of which dates from the 18th century, many articles made of stitching (bonnets and embroidered or pearled silk stockings) and abundant illustrations. A reconstitution of a 19th century crafts workshop and a film illustrate the daily life of workers, the swift technological changes and the creativity of the local inventors.
