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!

A very wide collection of paintings from different periods - many by French painters that I had never heard of but will look out for now.

One of our principles is to visit at all costs a museum with a Bonnard painting in it's collection. Bonnard is the Mozart of the painters, you may not like everything, but the work always makes one realise that one is a human being and not a dog. Again, we were not dissapointed. The museum has an extreme rich collection.... More

A little jewel of a museum, on Place Stanislas, another jewel. Take two hours to wander around the museum, and then wander outside to marvel at it's setting. I only intended to spend an hour inside, but extended it to 2+. Highly recommended!
