Spacious 4 floors of exhibits. Especially enjoyed Cortot's work and the Daum glassware and vase exhibit.

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.

After braving the crowds in Paris, visiting this museum was a great treat. It is small but with a very nice collection including some of the old masters and many from the French impressionist period. The entrance is only 6 euros and no crowds.

This eclectic museum has a wide variety of art. While I am not necessarily a glass fan, the Daum pieces on display are very nice. I lucked into visiting on what seemed like a quiet day. The staff was very helpful explaining some of the pieces. I spent about 2 hours and felt like I got a nice taste of... More

The museum is conveniently located on Stanislas Square, and like much art, some is just weird! This is a nice collection of art no matter your tastes. The top two floors have more art from the 1400's-1700's, while the bottom floor is more contemporary with some art installations. My husband and I found a few beautiful pieces that were similar...
