Art deco setting
The Museum has found an amazing home in what must have been the most beautiful swimming pool in France!

The original striking Art Deco designs and fittings have been carefully uncovered and restored.

Collection
In this setting the Museum opened in 2001 to present its collections of paintings, sculpture, drawings, graphic design, textiles, fashions and ceramics - reflecting the creativity and energy behind Roubaix' industrial heyday as a world centre of textile manufacture and other industries.

Events
They will stage a programme of multi-sensory events to help make the collections and their significance accessible to a wider public.
