  • This museum has a good selection of art from the middle ages on, but a very good selection of 19th c. art. The art glass collection is striking.

  • The art here is not of the first order but nice for a provincial museum, with some good Art Nouveau glassware, and very nice pictures by Friand.

  • A very descent collection for a local art museum. There are definitely some problems with the lightning as sometimes I needed time to find a good spot to see all the details without reflects. Anyway, if you want a quiet hour for inspiration without being overwhelmed, that’s the place to be in Nancy. Also there is a painting by Lucian Freud!
  • We were fortunate enough to visit on a Sunday where the entrance was free. We really enjoyed looking at the art, from the more modern to medieval style. The room with all the mirrors and lighter was mesmerizing!
