  • Very interesting museum. Some beautiful lace and machinery exposed. Do not miss the lace making show where they demonstrate how the machine operates. The garments showcased are kept in perfect condition. The gift shop is also a very nice visit in itself since they sell many products made with Calais lace coming from local factories and from the museum lace machines. -M
  • Beautifully presented exhibition with plenty of English signage. Very informative about the history of lace making and its impact on the development of Calais. The demonstration is impressive. A bonus was the temporary exhibition on Lecoanet Hemant with fabulous fashions, again superbly presented.
