From time to time, Le Mobilier National – the institute historically charged with furnishing royal households – puts on temporary exhibitions of antique furniture and textiles woven by the prestigious Gobelin guild. The building also hosts the odd contemporary art show, in an effort to contextualise its own collection. Definitely worth a gander (though be aware that exhibitions don't run throughout the year, and that the institute otherwise remains closed to the public).
