This is one of the very few Glass Museums in France and definately worth a visit. Right now the special show is "Legras" but the permanent collection is also open.

Reviewed June 13, 2011

We have visited the Musee du Verre twice - the first time in May 2010 for the exhibition of dalle de verre works by the late Henri Guérin, and most recently in May 2011 to see the retrospective exhibition, 'Isabelle Monod - 35 ans de verre'. Whilst we were most impressed by the Guérin exhibition (because we particularly enjoy the dalle de verre technique), both exhibitions have been well presented and documented (explanations have been provided in French only).

Apart from the temporary exhibition space, there is a small permanent collection which focusses on the unique pâte de verre windows created by François Decorchemont (1880-1971), the celebrated glass maker. In addition to the Decorchemont works, the permanent collection includes works by the late Claude Monod, Etienne and Antoine Leperlier (the grandsons of François Decorchemont), Yann Zoritchak, and a small number of others.

The Museum has a small collection of books for sale (relating principally to its perament and temporary exhibitions) and a small collection of material relating to other glass museums, galleries etc. If you are a glass worker or particularly interested in glass, you can easily spend several hours in the Museum.

The Museum, which was established in 1996, is open from Wednesday to Sunday (2.00 pm to 6.00 pm) from March until November. In May 2011, the admission fee was 3 Euros. At the time of our visits in 2010 and 2011, the Museum manager was a very helpful young woman who speaks some English.
