The museum was beyond our expectations in every way. The collection is amazing-well exhibited -and easy to view. It includes furniture, carvings, paintings, glass works and everything in... More

This is a nice place to spend an hour or so while visiting Nancy. Tickets are 6 euro. We found close by free street parking when we visited on a Saturday. Try to go on a sunny day as the museum is a little dark. We were there on a cloudy afternoon. The glass pieces and the furnishings were beautiful... More

Fantastic collection of art from that period. Be sure to see the beautiful square with the gates and sculptures that are lit at night.

If you're into Art Nouveau (or Jugendstil) Nancy is your place of Pilgrimage. There are so much Art Nouveau artefacts to be seen in this city, but nothing can beat the Musee de l'Ecole. Don't think the geometrical Viennese Secession style - think florid. Very florid, up to drooping woodwork, like the dripping wax on candles. Yes, it can be... More

My wife loves Art Deco and that's why we visited Nancy. We weren't disappointed. The museum is very beautiful, the exhibits are beautiful and very well presented, and there is great information to explain everything.

Lovely little museum about 10 mins walk from Nancy centre - full of gorgeous ceramics, glass, furniture and whole rooms done up in the sumptous, sinuous art nouveau style of turn-of-the-last-century France. Pretty gardens too.

The building, the furniture, the gardens, are all in the art deco style. It is a great place to spend a few hours wandering around.

This is one of the loveliest museums we have visited. It is set in lovely grounds with an unusual aquarium. The house is beautful with the most lovely Art Nouveau furniture and glass. The sense of period and the magnificence of the Art Nouveau is represented clearly in all the room settings. All of the important figures of the Art... More
