Une maison tres belle, un exemple de l-art nouveau a Nancy magnifique. Good museum, nice explanations about architecture, building history and details like furniture. Gorgeous mansion! Had a great visit! Better opening hours (till 6:00 pm) than many others…
A gem for the lovers of art nouveau. The house is recently renovated and looks superb both inside and outside.
