Information on the Silk Museum

The rich history of the town of Taulignan, first silkworm farm town in the Drôme, is intimately linked with the history of silk activity. In 2001 the town acquired a private collection which became the starting point for the Silk Museum. The Museum is located in the old parish school and shows how Taulignan has renewed its connection with its industrial heritage in silk production.
