The museum is located on Place Stanislas and has a good collection of art covering the 12th to the 20th century, with some real gems scattered on each floor. When we visited there was a great exhibition of Michael Kenna's black and white photography on the ground floor. The real jewel can be found in the basement where there is... More

If you see nothing else in Nancy this museum's Daum glass collection in the basement - around the old fortress walls of the city is a must.... truly spectacular in the design of the rooms and the collection of glass works. This little museum could easily be missed because it has only a few 'great' paintings, and for some reason... More

the collection of daum glass is stunning, going from the glassware of the late 19th to the crystal of the early 20th-- in a remarkable setting...the excavated fortifications of medieval Nancy

In the basement of this fine palace on the Stanislas square is a unique (and large) collection of glassware by Daum - the highlights being the early work from the late 1800's though to the end of the First World War. Each cabinet is better than the one before and the combination of the dark of the rooms, the clever... More

The Musee des Beaux-Arts in Nancy is by far, hands down, our favourite fine arts museum in France (and we've seen quite a few of them). The arrangement of the museum starts with modern and contemporary, working its way back chronologically as one ascends the levels. This backwards presentation is a refreshing change from the other museums for one, as... More

A grand collection awaits at the Musee des Beaux-Arts in Nancy. We spent almost two hours and didn't make it to every collection. Don't miss the ruins of the original citadel in the basement!

This Museum is a very nice surprise. Its internal lay out is modern and attractive and it hosts a remarkable collection of paintings beginning in the XIVth century through the impressionists and contemporary art. This rich and well presented museum matches the opulence and taste of any european capital city.

I jumped off the train for an afternoon in Nancy. After finding out the train station had no lockers, I was delighted to find the Musee has plenty and don' t mind you leaving your luggage while you have an excellent lunch in Stanislas Square. Then devote several hours to the excellent collection, including Monets, Manets and Rodins which you... More

A very spacious gallery, with a lovely diversity of collections to appeal to many tastes. Be sure to look for works by Emile Friant in the contemporary wing; his faces are incredible!
