From modern to classic

Small and easily navigated museum with a wide range of art. The room with the fairy lights, mirrors and water make a fascinating installation!

Painting and sculpture collections are large, but somewhat undistinguished. The real highlight is the very large display of Daum glass on the lower level, a comprehensive history of one of the world's great producers from its beginnings to the present day! Very strong on Daum art nouveau and art deco examples.

This is a nice museum: a lot of light, modern and with a good collection of paintings from the late 19th century and the 20th century. In the basement they have several show cases with vases by Daum. The collection is marvellous! If you are a fan of the art nouveau glass works, this is surely a place you must... More

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
