In the aftermath of the war, Beauvais retains few testimonies evoking the glorious past of its Manufacture. Built on the plans of the architect André Hermant in 1964, near the Cathedral, the Gallery sits on the foothills of the Gallo-Roman ramparts of which you can see some vestiges.
It presents contemporary exhibitions as well as furniture and textiles belonging to the Mobilier National collections. It pays tribute to the famous Royal Tapestry Manufactory formerly Beauvais. It houses and serves as a presentation to the National Furniture collections.
Its cultural programming is developed around the identity "Heritage and Creation". In partnership with the Mobilier National and the regional cultural structures (Picardie Regional Contemporary Art Fund, Photaumnales), the Gallery conducts an ambitious and dynamic policy of temporary exhibitions aimed at a national and international influence.
