This museum is certainly out of the way, but can be reached on the Number 8 bus which leaves from outside the Congress Centre at Quai de Republic. The Art Nouveau furniture designed by Galle and others is simply stunning in the artistic design and shows a level of brilliance which is sadly missing from most present day artists. The... More

The place to go to see the essence of art nouveau in Nancy! Furniture, paintings, glaswork, and an interesting building (don't skip the aquarium building in the garden).

A really nice place to visit. It is a private house with Art Nouveau furniture. Very nice presentation and fortunatelly only a few visitors when we were inside. It is possible to admire a dining room, a desk and a bath room as it was used with a lot of "pâte de verre" vases

Small but wonderful collection of art nouveau furniture, ceramics and complete interiors. This museum offers more attraction, than the whole city of Nancy. Lots of fully equipped rooms, it is a real highlight for art nouveau fans. The only weakness is, that descriptions are in French only. English speaking tourists will have some hard time here.

Really excellent setting for a first class collection of material. Definitely the highlight of a visit to Nancy. If you walk there you can relax in the nearby park afterwards.

If you have time for only one tourist attraction in Nancy, this museum should be your choice. This former mansion of a local businessman and art patron is now the gathering place for some of the finest examples of Art Nouveau decor and craftsmanship. It's a short bus or cab ride from Place Stan. You will leave here knowing a... More

This is a small museum set in an old house, wonderfully decorated with art nouveau pieces. It reminded me of how beautiful we once tried to make even ordinary things. The grounds were lovely in autumn.

This is possibly the most beautiful and incredible experience in a lifetime. I have seen a lot of galleries and museums around the world, and this one is probably the most amazing place I have been. A must see before you die.

Get there right when they open to best avoid crowds. This is a favorite small museum of mine. The grounds are lovely too. Plan about 1.5 hours there perhaps.

This is an Art Nouveau mecca - the birthplace of the movement. A converted large house in beautiful gardens that once belonged to a local collector and art patron. The collection is stunning and beautifully presented, room by room. The museum is of a size that it can be seen in one to one and a half hours. There are... More
