Lonely Planet review for Hôtel de Vauluisant
This haunted-looking, Renaissance-style mansion houses two unique museums. Plants used to make dyes and oil paints in the Middle Ages grow in the courtyard.
Redesigned in 2009, the Museum of Troyes Art features the evocative paintings, stained glass and statuary (stone and wood) of the Troyes School, which flourished here during the economic prosperity and artistic ferment of the early 16th century.
The Hosiery Museum showcases the sock-strewn story of Troyes' 19th-century knitting industry.
