In 1879, she undertook the construction of a palace to house her important collection of works of art that she wished to bequeath to the French state. Following a legal imbroglio the collection went to Italy and the Palais Galliera was finally inaugurated in December 1895 as the Museum of Industrial Art. During the following decades, the place was used for various purposes (painting salon, auction room...) before being entirely dedicated to fashion, Starting at 1977.

The museum has undergone many periods of work and redevelopment over the past forty years. The work begun a little over two years ago and completed today, in addition to the renovation of 5,000 square meters of facades and architectural ornaments, allowed the transformation of the vaulted cellars into exhibition rooms, the creation of a second vertical circulation with an elegant staircase linking the two levels of the building, and thus doubling its surface area. The Fashion Museum will thus be able, in addition to the large-scale exhibitions organized each year, to present Starting at the summer of 2021 its permanent collection - renewed periodically due to the fragility of the pieces.
