Walking into another world

Not really a museum in the usually understood sense, but this beautifully designed house is full of wonderful furniture and other artefacts.

Just magnificent! We loved every single room of this gorgeous art nouveau museum. We walked from the centre of Nancy - about 15 minutes through local neighbourhoods. This former residence showcases furniture, stained glass and glassware and ceramics from the Art Nouveau period of the early 1900s, all in superb condition and spread out through various rooms of the mansion....

Amazing - all I could say all throughout the visit was WOW!!!! The amount of craftmanship and time to do the wood and glass is amazing. Think Tiffany glass / this is the start of all that.

This wonderful little museum makes you feel like you are part of a movie set in the 1900s. All the furniture, instruments, glassware, wooden floor and ceilings are in perfect state and makes the Art Nouveau period very much alive. It is certainly one of the smaller museums we have seen, but it is all worth it. Thanks to Tripadvisor... More

Definitely worth a visit, beautiful collection, carefully and attractively arranged interiors by famous art nouveau artists. A great experience together with the many art nouveau buildings in Nancy. Walk to the museum on a route with art nouveau buildings.

We travelled by tram to Mont Desert and walked several blocks. Whilst we realised that dogs were not allowed inside, we did think that my husband could wait outside on a bench however a very unfriendly man instructed my husband to leave. If I'd have seen the quality of the gardens first I'd have insisted that he was allowed to... More

This is probably what you came to Nancy to see. And the collection is all that you could ask for. Absolutely stunning furniture and objets from the masters of the Art Nouveau. You might ask for air conditioning, or, at least fans. And you might with that the curators had the imagination, or, at least, the space, to do more... More

I came away with one question 'how did we lose such beauty in our lives' but already I know. This type of work was to adorn wealthy homes so fashion changes to appeal to the wealthy I guess. Anyway, if you don't appreciate this exhibition of great crafstmenship then you're not living!

The museum is not very large, however it's enough to get the idea of art nouveau. As someone who is not really an art lover, I had a great time.
