The Musée des Tapisseries in Aix-en-Provence has been housed in the old Palais de l'Archevêché since 1909. This vast building is constructed with four wings surrounding an inner courtyard.
The Musée des Tapisseries is home to a great collection of tapestries from the 17th and 18th centuries such as "Les Grotesques", "L'Histoire des Don Quichotte", and "Les Jeux russiens", among others. Starting in 1949, Gabriel Dussurget hosted a lyrical arts festival dedicated to Mozart in the courtyard and made this one of the most famous open air theatres in Europe.
