Good collection with a few Impressionist pieces. Well balanced. Easy to move through in an hour to an hour and a half.

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!

This museum has a bit of everything and apart from the Daum collection there is not much that sticks out. The huge Rubens is spectacular and the so-called Caravaggio, well, make up your own mind on that one. The 19th and 20th century paintings section had some good works but hung in a rather chaotic way. The best part of... More

This is a good art gallery with some really interesting local artists as well as more famous works. Shame that the man selling the tickets on our visit was so rude! Not many rude people in Nancy - but he was an exception.
